The Buckeye Connection

Fifty 4-H members earned the opportunity to represent Belmont County at The Ohio State Fair in 57 different projects. Each 4-H member competed against 4-H members from across the county which completed the same project during Still Project Judging on July 20th. Youth were required to complete all project specific requirements, bring their completed project book, a one-page report and a display showing what they learned through their project.
