Ellen Jones sang her heart out at a former Fort Bend County Fair.

The 2019 Fort Bend County Fair has extended the deadline for its talent show competition.

“Earn yourself some cash and bragging rights if you have the most talent,” said Fair Association Board President Marjie Pollard.

Entries of all kinds are being accepted. The competition is open to anyone who has musical, vocal, dance, or any other skill set.

Contestants can be from all over — including surrounding counties.

“It is your chance to shine in the spotlight and earn from $100 to $500 in first place earnings,” Pollard said.

Dancers, singers, comedians, jugglers and other performers are welcomed to enter. All acts are limited to 5 minutes and will be judged on the basis of talent, showmanship, audience rapport, and stage presence.

The decision of the judges is final.

Talent divisions are divided into 5 groups: Elementary, Junior, Intermediate, Senior, and Adult.

Entry fees range from $20 to $30 dollars depending on the division.

Cash awards will be given out to first, second, and third place.

The talent contest will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28 beginning at 11 a.m. on the Texas Stage.

The Fort Bend County Fair must receive entries by Friday, Sept. 13.

Talent Contest Entry Forms may be picked up at the Fort Bend County Fair Office or online at www.fortbendcountyfair.com.
