Friday, 04 August 2017 21:05

Updated - Aug. 15

INDIANAPOLIS - The first judging results for Pulaski County 4-H members at the 2017 Indiana State Fair have been received.

The state fair was runs Aug. 4-20 in Indianapolis.

The Indiana 4-H Program celebrates the accomplishments of the 4-H youth who are exhibiting and/or visiting this year's Indiana State Fair. It takes time, energy and perseverance to be an active and committed 4-H member. 4-H focuses on a "learning by doing" method which enables the child to not only read and learn about his/her interests but also to complete a project to demonstrate what he/she learned in a particular area.

The program today focuses on positive youth development and human capital. Program directors utilize subject matter that enhances that development. Organizers recognize that the youth of today are future leaders. What they learn and experience in the 4-H program helps them develop into contributing citizens who will "give back" to their communities in the future.

If you would like to volunteer or join 4-H, please contact the Extension Office.  

If you have any questions, please contact the Pulaski County Extension Office located on 125 S. Riverside Dr. in Winamac at 574-946-3412. The Pulaski County Extension Office is open from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Visit its web site at www.extension.purdue.edu/pulaski or find it on Facebook by searching for Pulaski County Extension Office.

Pulaski County 4-H State Fair Project Results

Indiana State Fair 4-H results are released by Purdue Extension. The Extension staff partners with the Indiana State Fair to post 4-H exhibit results. The results they post from 4-H livestock competitions are unofficial and are generally not available until show records have been audited after the completion of the show. They remain unofficial results until the Indiana State Fair Drug Testing Program results are available.

Indiana State Fair ribbons are awarded using the following criteria:

  • Green – participation
  • White – poorly constructed or barely meets exhibit requirements
  • Red – adequately constructed or does not fully meet exhibit requirements
  • Blue – very complete exhibit, meets exhibit requirements, and is well constructed
  • Orange – exceptional blue ribbon exhibit (Merit)

Sweepstakes is awarded to the best overall exhibit in that 4-H project subject matter area.

Andria Johns is among several Pulaski County 4-H'ers who won orange ribbon merit awards at the 2017 Indiana State Fair. Andria won her award in the crafts division for her crocheted blanket stitched with the verse from Proverbs, "Trust in the Lord with all your Heart." The blanket features 39 blocks all made separately with popcorn stitch which were then sewn together. Displaying the winning exhibit in this photo are Scott Fritz of Winamac, a state fair board member, and Emma Taylor of Putnam County, a state fair 4-H volunteer.
