She competed against a dozen others in the Junior Instrumental Solo division for ages 12 and under at the Youth Talent Contest.

Her three minute performance on her fiddle earned her a blue ribbon, $100 and an engraved plaque.

At the conclusion of the contest, she was surprised by her great aunt and uncle, Kathy and Gordon Simler, with the gift of a banjo that she can add to her collection of instruments which include a fiddle, keyboard and pink guitar.
