The Christian County Fair has come and gone, but that doesn't mean the work is over for the Christian County 4-H program. The focus for many of the kids involved in 4-H now shifts to the state fair, and the competitions the 4-H members are participating in.
Rebecca Livingston is the Program Coordinator for the Christian County 4-H Youth and Development program, and appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show. She said she felt things went smoothly at the Christian County Fair all things considered.
35 kids from Christian County will be showing at the various competitions at the Illinois State Fair. Livingston says the competitions are essentially the same as what they saw at the county level, but with increased competition.
One difference Livingston mentioned between the Christian County Fair and the Illinois State Fair, is that kids can only show one project on the state level, where they could show several on the county level.
