Congratulations to all of the 4-H’ers, FFA and community members who exhibited at this year’s Lincoln County Fair. It was wonderful to see all of the youth’s project work for the year and to witness exemplary sportsmanship by youth involved in all aspects of the county fair.
We have received a listing of special awards (Best of Show, Honorable Mention, etc.) presented at this year’s fair from the Lincoln County Fair Association.
Completing a project and showing it at the county fair has been a part of the 4-H tradition since the organization began. Each young person is a winner for trying. Encouragement from one adult can make a big difference in a young person’s life. Adults, including parents/guardians and 4-H leaders should focus on the efforts of the youth and the learning that is occurring, not the color of the ribbon. No matter what the 4-H member’s project is, the focus of adults must be the 4-H member. Ribbons and awards will fade, but the things young people learn last a lifetime.
