MONROE - The 160th Green County Fair is sponsoring a sanctioned Wisconsin State Fair Junior Amateur Talent Competition on Friday, July 18 during the Green County Fair. There will be two age division contests where each first-place winner will move onto the state competition scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 7 and Friday, Aug. 8. Applications are available from Tuesday, April 1 through Friday, June 6.

"The preliminary state contest information we received will provide state prize money for the top three finalists in each division, with first prize being $3,000," said Theresa Wyss, contest coordinator and current Green County Fairest of the Fair.

The state sanctioned Green County Talent Contest is open to all legal residents of Wisconsin. The contest divisions - youth (2 to 12 years) and teen (13 to 18 years) - have four basic talent areas to select from: Dance, vocal, instrumental and variety. Contestants will have one minute to set up and a maximum of three minutes to perform. Additional contest requirements are provided with the application. The contest will limit each division to the first 10 qualified acts.
