The annual Stokes County 4-H Talent Show was held on Wed., May 13, at the Walnut Ridge Assisted Living. There were about 25 participants, winning blue, red and white ribbons. Two acts were chosen as the best overall to advance to 4-H District Activity Day at NC A&T State University. They were both sibling routines: Maya and Anika Burgess singing “That’s What’s Up” to Maya’s guitar accompaniment and Elijah, Abigail and Malachi Evans in a hip-hop/interpretive dance routine to the 2015 Oscar-winning song, “Glory,” from the movie “Selma.”
Maya and Anika are the daughters of Bruce and Emily Burgess of Danbury. Elijah, Abigail and Malachi are the children of Alan and Leslie Bray Brewer of Danbury and Keith Evans of Walnut Cove. All of the winners are members of the School Skippers 4-H Club.
