Project Check-in Day at Jefferson County 4H Fair


4H Project Check -In Day at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds

Yesterday was D-day,as in ‘due day’,for the many,many kids involved in 4H here in Madison and all throughout Jefferson County. The lines were long and the projects varied. Projects ranged from the traditional, including: Geology,Electrical,Photography and Cake Decorating,to the lesser known: Aquatic Science,Aerospace,and,a holdover from last year,Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial;an Indiana 4H Project commemorating the bicentennial of the birth of Abraham Lincoln,the 16th President of the United States,who lived in Indiana for roughly 15 years.

Those who arrived late ran the risk of not getting projects turned in on time(cut-off was 7 p.m.),especially those with multiple projects to turn in. Fortunately the judges were kind enough to wait till the last minute before cutting off further entries. 

Thursday’s check-in was for all non-animal projects. Today’s(Saturday’s)check-ins are for Poultry,Rabbits,Sheep & Goats and will run from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m. .

The exhibit hall will open today at 4 p.m. .

Good luck to all Observer-area 4H kids!
