JERSEYVILLE - Ryleigh Turner captured first in the Senior Division and McKenna Fox in the Junior Division at Tuesday night’s Jersey County Fair Talent Show.

This was the 23rd year for Alex Foster at the leadership helm of the Jersey County Fair Talent Show.

“It’s amazing each year,” he said. “I get sentimental about it every year; our product and talent seem to just continue each year. The 2017 champions are treasures for our community and the 2018 competitors are wonderful and match them."

He said the talent show is so successful because of the participants, parents, volunteers, sponsors, fair board and so much more.

“The talent show is really a community event, it takes hundreds of people to put on each year,” he said. “Congratulations to all of our talent competition participants and thank you to all of our sponsors, contributors, volunteers and supporters.”
