4-H Members Exhibit Projects At State Fair

U of I Extension News ~ August 30, 2017

More than 50 Washington County 4-H members attended the Illinois State Fair on August 13 to exhibit their 4-H general projects.

They were selected as delegates in their project areas at the 4-H general projects show held earlier in the summer.

Much like at the county 4-H show, members participate in conference judging at the state 4-H show. They meet with a judge to discuss their project. Each exhibit is given a rating of either Award of Excellence, or Superior.

Ten members from Washington County received the Superior rating this year.

Aiden Barrett, Entomology 1, Superior

Sebastian Cowger, Photography Innovation Class, Superior

Elias Mullinax, Robotics 1 Beginning, Superior

Quinton Mullinax, Documentary, Superior

The new 4-H year will begin on September 1. For information on getting youth involved in 4-H, please call the Marion County Extension Office at 618-548-1446.
