MEDINA — Sabrina Hartman is getting used to being on a stage.

On Wednesday, it was the pavilion stage for the talent show at the Medina County Fair, and she felt right at home in front of the crowd of about 100 people. Singing in front of an audience didn’t faze the 15-year-old.

“I’d do it every day if I could,” she said. “It’s easy.”

Hartman, who will be a sophomore at Highland High School in the fall, was judged the top performer in the 13- to 17-year-old division of the talent show.

She performed “New York State of Mind” by Billy Joel.

“I wasn’t nervous,” Hartman said. “It was fun.”

Hartman brought home the first-place prize of $50 and a trophy.

She said she’s won numerous singing competitions, including “The Voice” in Medina last year.

Hartman said she wants to be a famous singer when she’s older, or a first-grade teacher.

She edged out runner-up Summer Rios and Savannah Riggs, third, in her division.

Mack Industries of Valley City was the sponsor of the show and donated the prize money. Second-place contestants won $25 and third place $15.

“We’ve been on a talent search all day and you haven’t let us down,” Betsy Mack of Mack Industries told the contestants. “We’re so grateful you came here today.”

Medina’s Joey Swihart, 9, took top honors in the 9- to 12-year-old division with his Michael Jackson-type dance routine.

Cousins Callie Conzaman, 11, of Copley, and Emma Arnold, 9, of Berea, finished second.

Luke Pinner, 6, of Medina, was the only place-winner in the 6- to 8-year-old division with his Fortnite dance routine.
