Non-livestock results from the State Fair

Aug 29, 2017

Washington County 4-H’ers earned awards for their entries judged in the 4-H Exhibits Building at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.

This year Washington County 4-H was allotted to send 49 non-livestock projects to the Iowa State Fair. These were selected by judges at the county fair in July. Four-H’ers receive ribbon awards based on how they meet their goals and on the evaluation standards established for each particular project area.

“I know the 4-H’ers learn a lot from the State Fair experience. The competition is high and the variety of projects is amazing,” said Amy Green, Washington County 4-H and Youth Coordinator. “They get valuable feedback from the state fair judges and see how other 4-H’ers presented their ideas and projects as well.”
