Polk County Youth Fair 2009

The Polk County Youth Fair has been a big part of 4-H for my children for the past 8 years. This year the fair was moved from March to January. This made it a bit difficult for Horticulture projects, but somehow the boys both managed to get blue ribbons on all of their vegetable entries in spite of a freeze a week before the event. Matthew also placed 2nd in the Senior Horticulture Judging Competition and Andrew placed 1st in the Junior Horticulture Judging Competition. Here are a few pictures of the event.....

Congratulations to you, boys! FIRST PLACE, Andrew, that is so great - and not easy. Matthew, 2nd place isn't easy either - especially in the Sr. division. We are proud of you both.

Matthew, your' whip popping was awesome.
