William Polly of Virginia, visiting his grandparents, won the Got Talent Contest with his cup stacking. It’s been a busy few months for young William who put in a stacking appearance on the Jay Leno Show earlier this summer.

Being a judge would be difficult at the Chase County Fair’s Got Talent Contest.

Dancing, singing and cup stacking are hard to choose among for the top spot.

The judges, all from radio stations in the area, chose William Polly of Virginia as the number one winner, for his speed stacking.

Speed stacking involves cups being positioned in pyramids. Polly has won numerous awards including a national title for his quickness.

He is the grandson of Judy and Karl Polly of Wauneta.

Second place went to Tom Sullivan of Imperial, for his “Mac the Knife” interpretation of Frank Sinatra’s song.

Third place went to Stacy Wehner with her song version of “Harper Valley PTA.”

Fourth place was given to Lianna Prill of Holdrege with her song “How Do I Live.”

There were 19 contestants in this year’s contest, sponsored by KADL, High Plains Radio and Chase County Fair.

The Ninth Street Singers of Chase County Schools entertained the crowd after the contest was concluded.
