The Illinois State Treasurer’s Office announcing some of the winners of their Cream of the Crop photo contest.
Taylorville’s Drew Mickey took second place in his age category.
That’s Treasurer Michael Frerichs. He says the state set up savings accounts for higher education for the winners.
Frerichs is excited to announce the state fair auction will return more than $200,000 to families through the iCash program.
Frerichs personally auctioned off a bunch of items during the event taking place the second Saturday of the State Fair. He says they sold off a lot of expected items, but also some antiques.
