FOR­TUNE, NL – Per­form­ers from around the re­gion shone dur­ing the Burin Penin­sula’s Got Tal­ent com­pe­ti­tion at the For­tune Lions Cen­tre on Aug. 20.

Con­tes­tants of all ages per­formed for the au­di­ence, pro­vid­ing an evening of mu­sic, dance and com­edy for all to en­joy.

The big win­ner was 12-yearold Sid­ney Hil­lier of Jean de Baie who took home $500 for her per­for­mance.

The judges had a very dif­fi­cult time de­cid­ing on the win­ners but, in the end, de­cided to of­fer a $50 prize to Tyra Tuck of Grand Bank for an Ir­ish dance and bal­let rou­tine. An­other $50 win­ner was Amanda Klein for her mu­si­cal per­for­mance.

The event was hosted by Deann Hick­man and judges were Glo­ria Myles of For­tune, Cindy Picco of Marystown and Lee Mas­ters of Win­ter­land. Dr. Marcia Pen­well spon­sored the evening.

The Feller from For­tune In­ter­na­tional Fes­ti­val com­mit­tee thanks all par­tic­i­pants for their dis­plays of tal­ent and the au­di­ence mem­bers for their sup­port.
