Recognizing 4-H winners from the fair

April 18, 2002

The California Mid-Winter Fair & Fiesta was over March 10, and I would like to recognize some 4-H members who worked very hard but get little recognition for the hard work they do.

I am talking about our

youth who enter 4-H projects in the still exhibits building. There were about 2,500 still exhibit projects entered. This year we had fewer projects exhibited. The 4-H projects ranged from cooking, baking, rocketry, clothing and textiles, canning, environmental science, woodworking, arts and crafts, mini gardens to electrical energy projects, plus as many other projects as you can imagine.

Competition is just as hard as in the livestock division. 4-Hers are gearing up to win the sweepstakes awards and the grand champion ribbons. The California Mid-Winter Fair & Fiesta is the place where 4-Hers can exhibit their finished products. This is the place where they shine.

Not only are the 4-Hers anxious for their projects to be judged, the adult 4-H leader, "the teacher" who instructed the 4-H member in the finished 4-H projects, is just as anxious.

Their hard work paid off. Here are the 4-Hers that excelled in their still exhibits projects:
