There will be a dress rehearsal at 3:00 pm on Thursday, July 12, 2013.

8.
When using cd's for accompaniment, they can NOT have LIKE talent on them, i.e. vocals, tap dancing, any like instrument and so forth. CDs must only have the one accompaniment track solely on it. CD must be "cued" and ready for performance. (A backup cd is recommended, but NOT required.)
9.
The first place winner in both divisions is obligated to represent Christian County at the State Competition in January 2014. In the event that the Christian County Fair Talent Competition First Place Winner in either division is unable to compete at the state competition in January 2014, the runner up will represent Christian County. Any act or member of an act that has ever represented Christian County at the state level and has received first place at the state level is ineligible to compete in the local division of the same age category at the Christian County Fair. A contestant for the 2013 Miss Christian County Fair Pageant is not eligible for the 2013 Christian County Fair Talent Competition due to the fact it would be impossible to represent Christian County in both the Pageant and Talent Competition at the State level in January 2014.
