UPDATE: Baker received an award of excellence and a superior award for her photograph, the highest award you can receive at the state level.
A Taylorville teen is one of many 4-H members from across the state of Illinois to be showing their work at the Illinois State Fair. 17-year-old Hayden Baker will be showing her one of her photographs in Springfield today.
The photograph was selected at the Christian County Agricultural Fair to be shown at the Illinois State Fair. Baker says she originally joined 4-H to show horses.
Baker says she’s very happy she joined the 4-H program 6 years ago. She says the program has had a big impact on her life.
Baker encourages younger kids to find a way to join the 4-H program.
