The Monroe County 4-H and FFA Fair will be host to the Bill Riley Talent Show on Sunday, July 30 beginning at 6 p.m. The event is sponsored by the Albia Hy-Vee Food Store.

The mission of the Bill Riley Talent Search is to serve as a developmental platform for young Iowans involved in the performing arts. By maintaining a nurturing and educational environment we aim to promote self esteem, self discipline and self confidence while helping them to achieve their goals and shoot for the stars, one performance at a time.

There is a preference for Monroe County residents to perform.

Age Groups include Sprouts ages 2-12 and Seniors ages 13-21. Age is determined at the time they win a local show. Sprouts acts who qualify at a local show will be permitted to have one performer who is 13 years old only at the Iowa State Fair. Any performer who is 14 years or older will not be allowed to perform in a Sprout act.

No more than five persons are allowed in an act. Piano accompanist is not included in an act and may be any age. No more than three accompanists are permitted per act. Drums, amps, etc. are discouraged due to the one-minute set-up time. No combos, rock bands or similar musical groups are permitted.

Acts must keep the performance to three minutes.

Vocalists can perform with an accompanist or CD/Ipod/USB flash-drive. Pre-recorded tracks should be instrumental only. Any pre-recorded track with backing vocals is not allowed, and the act will be disqualified.

Contestants may only appear once in any given show.

Professionals are not permitted to compete.

A complete list of rules can be found on the Iowastatefair.org, contestant rules

Check-in for contestants will be between 5-5:30 p.m. with the contestant meeting at 5:30 p.m.
