TELL CITY - Perry County 4-H members showed off their talent during 4-H's 2009 Share the Fun contest April 21 at the fairgrounds.

"Share the Fun is a time for 4-H members to have a good time as they learn about performing arts," said Perry County 4-H Youth Development Educator Renate Jobst. "They have a chance to write a skit or showcase a talent such as singing or playing an instrument. Our 4-H members are extremely talented."

There were three types of acts: group acts, musical curtain acts and nonmusical curtain acts. Winning this year's group act competition was Community Service Innovation's 4-H Club performing a skit called, "Let's Go." The runner-up was the Tell City Shamrocks, who performed a play called, "Save the Day the 4-H Way."

The winning musical curtain act was Garrett Jarboe of the Tell City Shamrocks, who performed a piano solo called "Elegy in E." The runner-up was Sam Snyder of the Tell City Shamrocks, who performed a guitar and vocal solo called "Wild Horses."

Nathan Dotson of Community Service Innovations took first place for his nonmusical act called, "I Can Only Imagine."

Other performances included Kayla Seifert of the Tell City Shamrocks playing a piano solo called "The Minstrel's Song," and Corrie Kimbril of Community Service Innovations, who performed a vocal solo called "The Star Spangled Banner."

Judging the event was Susan Zoglmann.

"I was very impressed with the enthusiasm and talent of the 4-H members," Jobst said. "They are to all be commended for their talent as well as their willingness to get up in front of a group and perform."

The winning acts will perform at an Area 4-H Share the Fun Contest May 8 in Martin County.
