4-H projects on display at Vermilion County Fair

4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization, empowering six million young people throughout the United States.

Each year, 4-H members in Vermilion County work diligently on completing projects ranging from scrap booking to raising cattle, decorating cakes to showing swine, and everything in-between.

The completion of 4-H projects peaks at the Vermilion County Fair, where the 4-H members will present their projects for judging. Awards will be given based on the knowledge the youth have accumulated in that project’s area over the past year.

Join them at this year’s Vermilion County Fair to celebrate the youth who completed 4-H projects. You can view the completed exhibits and see how 4-H had an impact on 4-H members’ lives.

Come celebrate their achievements while learning more about an organization that empowers millions of youth throughout the country every day.

Judging at the fairgrounds begins at 2 p.m. on June 19, and will occur daily throughout the duration of the fair. 

The public can view projects in the 4-H exhibit hall and livestock in the barns before and after judging. Additionally, everyone is invited to attend the Tractor and Lawn Tractor Driving Contest on June 20, at 9 a.m.

On  June 22, the Steinbaugh Showmanship Contest will take place at 5 p.m., followed by a special recognition presentation for 4-H members and the Friends of 4-H Livestock Auction at 6 p.m.
