Contestants are being sought for the Houston County Fair's Talent Contest to be held Wednesday, Aug. 14, in the Entertainment Tent at the fairgrounds in Caledonia.

Cash prizes ($100, $50, $25) will be awarded to the winners in three age categories: Preteen (12 and under), Teen (13-18) and Open (adult or any age).

The first-place winner in each division will also be eligible to compete in the Minnesota State Fair's Talent Contest where they could win an additional cash prize.
