Hyannis hosted the District L Lions Club Talent Contest Sunday, April 28. Winners from the Eustis/Farnam, Grant-Imperial, Wallace, Bridgeport, Alliance, Hyannis, and Chadron local contests participated in the district competition. Representing the Wallace Lions Club local contest were Kolton Hager and Micah Swedberg.
Kolton won his age division in the Wallace contest by playing a piano solo entitled “Ode To Joy.” Rebecca Vote placed second by playing a violin solo. Winning the younger group division at the local talent contest was a fifth grade instrumental ensemble consisting of Sydney Pelster, Quinn Koop and Ashton Erickson but they were unable to participate at the District Contest.
Micah Swedberg won the older age division in Wallace by singing “Pie Jesu” which is a Latin prayer song. Kaden Hager placed second with a piano solo.
Kolton and Micah did not place at the district competition but it was a great experience and they did a great job representing the Wallace Lions Club. The district winners of each division will be performing in Norfolk for the state competition which is part of the state convention.
