This year Seminole County 4-H had numerous entertaining acts at the county level ranging from stand-up comedy to a martial arts demonstration. Five youth from Seminole County 4-H went on to compete at the District VIII 4-H Share the Fun held this past May in Orange County. Of these acts, Sarah Learned’s vocal performance won her a slot to perform at the state competition in Gainesville, Florida.
