Participants must either live, work or attend school in Isle of Wight County. Group acts that have a majority of a certain age in their group will be placed in that age group. Acts must be 3-1/2 to 4 minutes long. Anything over four minutes may be disqualified. If pre-registration warrants auditions, the top three acts from each age division and category will compete Sept. 15 at the Isle of Wight County Fair Family Stage.
