Vigo County 4-H Exhibit Results
TERRE HAUTE, Indiana – Vigo County 4-H held both in-person events along with virtual entries for exhibition for its members in July. 4-Her’s were able to showcase their talents in a variety of different areas! Over 1,400 entries were received for exhibits in 2020. The Exhibit Hall included talented projects in photography, cupcake decorating, recycling, gardening, and many more. Many of these exhibits qualified for the Indiana State Fair, which will be held virtually. Livestock shows were able to proceed in-person following a detailed COVID-19 safety plan. Since the public was not allowed to visit the display of projects or shows, videos have been uploaded to the Purdue Extension-Vigo County YouTube Channel for public viewing.
Vigo County 4-H members have taken advantage of new opportunities provided in 2020 to learn more about themselves, develop new cooking skills, explore new careers, and travel the globe by participating in virtual learning opportunities provided by area 4-H Youth Development Educators. Increased time at home was spent working on projects and in the barn handling livestock projects in order to prepare them for their time in the show arena.
Purdue Extension-Vigo County would like to thank all of the 4-H Volunteers, 4-H members, and their families for their willingness to step up, be flexible, and try new things, all in an effort to provide a positive youth development experience, and “make the best better” for the youth of Vigo County.
