Throughout the year, 4-H’ers work with their county 4-H agents to develop the knowledge and presentation skills needed to successfully complete a project. Each county offers a number of opportunities and if a desired program isn’t available, it can be accomplished as an independent study. Through livestock programs including beef, goat, sheep, dairy, and swine; dog shows and Cloverville projects that range from country ham to woodworking to cooking, 4-Hers participate in local and county competitions to prepare for and earn a spot at the state fair.
The Logan County Fair was held this year May 28th through June 5th. There were 34 exhibits in this year’s exhibit hall. The entries represented all sorts of classes ranging from photography, to horticulture, woodworking to sewing. Many local students worked hard on these exhibits and several class champions will move on to be represented this year at the Kentucky State Fair. This year’s fair entries were submitted by:
Dalton Stratton, Selena Wells, Madison Mantlow, Colton Stratton, Meagan Ferguson, Denishia Rigsby, Jenny Colbert, Elisha Coffman, Katie Tyson, Chelsea Logan, Zac McElfresh, Lucas Taylor, Tristan Taylor, Seth Bagby, Thomas Kash, Carson Kash
This year’s grand champion entry was a nature craft submitted by Colton Stratton and the reserve champion was a needlework piece created by Katie Tyson. This year’s people’s choice winner was Dalton Stratton’s black and white drawing.
Logan County will be well represented in Cloverville this year at the KY State Fair!
The 2010 Kentucky State Fair takes place in Louisville August 19 through August 29.
