I’m so proud of my kids who worked really hard on their performing arts competitions for 4-H. My daughter did a choreographed routine, a sign language interpretation of Fireflies by Owl City. It was her first ever public performance of ASL since she started taking a class this year. Her group won 2nd place and was asked to perform for the awards ceremony. Afterwards, they were invited to come perform for a neighboring county’s 4-H fall banquet as an ambassador to inspire kids from that county to become involved in the performing arts.
My oldest son competed in the senior vocal category and placed 3rd. He’s a veteran of musical theater, but this was his first singing competition.
I love watching them try new things and grow. Being recognized as a success is a bonus.
