They also have a talent show where you can recite poetry, sing, dance or display your other talents. There is also a baked goods and crafts competition that you may enter. You do not have to enter all events. You only enter the ones you want to participate in. The Tucker Co. team has done very well in the past and we would love to have you join our team and help us bring home lots of medals.
