The event can only be a success due to the diligence and perseverance of more than 150 young performers and leaders, in addition to help from parents and friends.

The program is filled with song, dance, drama and music organized by young adults and 4-H members. It is always a hit for fun and entertainment.

The festival gives the 4-H members an opportunity to improve their communication and leadership skills, which they can transfer to their personal lives and will help them in their future endeavors.

They are able to express themselves through the arts and can interact with fellow 4-H members, leaders and the audience.

One of the judges was Alanna Rynish of Hortonville. She is a former 4-H member and participated in many drama and music festivals. She went to school at St. Norbert College, where she majored in music education.

Rynish enjoys playing in pit orchestras for musicals, judging school solo and ensemble competitions and playing in the Generations Big Band.

Another judge, Sally Haines, is an elementary music teacher in Sheboygan Falls and the director of the country music worship team at St. Paul’s Church.

Prior to teaching, she toured the country with the performing arts group, The Young Americans.

Performance Judge Beth Carreno is currently the education director at Bookworm Gardens. She has been involved in theater, musical performance and forensics since she was a child.

Judge Andrea Andersen has been an art educator for 15 years.

In addition to teaching art at Sheboygan Falls Middle School, she also teaches summer classes for children at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan.
