BROOKINGS- More than 3,100 4-H’ers entered just under 10,000 entries during the 2014 South Dakota State Fair held in Huron Aug. 28-Sept. 1.

“State Fair is their opportunity to showcase what they’ve been working on all year long - this is THE big event for 4-H,” said Audrey Rider, SDSU Extension State 4-H Events Field Specialist.

She explainsed that for South Dakota’s almost 9,000 4-H members, the S.D. State Fair is a celebration of the 2014 project year and also marks the beginning of the 2015 project year. “The fair provides a great opportunity for 4-H’ers to watch their peers from counties across our state compete and gives them ideas for projects they may want to work on in 2015,” Rider said.

“Fall River County was well represented by several dedicated youth who made the trip or sent projects to Huron,” said Brad Keizer, 4-H and Youth Advisor in Fall River County. “We have much to be proud of, so if you see a 4-Her, recognize their achievements and encourage him / her to continue on, as they are accomplishing great things.”
