The following rules are specified by the State Fair Talent Search. We have no means for checking every

rule the day of the contest, however, you will be disqualified at state if you break one, so make sure your

act is within these rules before you come.

1. Not more than 5 persons in a single act.

2. An individual may be part of only one act.

3. No pantomime to records or tapes. (Pure mime is accepted.)

4. Vocalists are strongly encouraged to practice and perform with the assistance of a vocal coach and

/or a live accompanist. Prerecorded accompaniment will be allowed as long as long as it is a single

instrument. Any prerecorded tape with backing vocals, multiple instrumentation or orchestration is not

allowed, and the act will be disqualified.

5. Acts with multiple performers, shall compete in the appropriate category by adding all of the ages

in the act and dividing by the total members in the act.

6. An accompanist, when not a part of the act, may be any age.

7. No more than 3 accompanists permitted.

8. All participants must be legal residents of Iowa.

9. Each act must not run more than 3 minutes. (At State, points will be deducted from acts going over

3 minutes or be subject to possible disqualification.)

10. No rock band due to the 1minute set up time.

11. Professionals are not permitted to compete. (This includes union musicians or anyone whose

principal income is from his/her Talent.

12. An act already qualified may not compete in this contest but may appear as entertainment during

the judges’ conference. (This is a Sweetcorn Daze Celebration  rule. Since we are one of the last shows to qualify

for the State Fair, this gives more people an opportunity to qualify.)

stage. After introductions, you may take any position you wish to begin your performance.

14. A person’s age for the Iowa State Fair competition is determined at the time they win a locall show.

A 14 year old (or 21 year old) could turn 15 (or 22) by State Fair and still be eligible in the Junior (or

Senior) division, as they met age requirements at the time of qualification.
