County Fair 2017

Both girls did an amazing job at the County Fair this year. Mary Clare only entered Photography, and she was awarded "Reserve Champion" (2nd place!) for her amazing silhouette photo of her two sisters and the sunset. Ellie entered Handicrafts and got 5th place for her clay bead jewelry set and 4th place in Candy for her American flag butter mints.

They did amazing work on their entries and their interviews for making Top 10. Neither of them had ever gotten in Top 5 (Ellie had top 10 last year), which goes to the live auction the next night. What an honor for them both! I was a proud mama and proud 4-H Club Manager! They got to stand with their items (Ellie just with her 4th place mints since they can only auction one item) and then walk around during the live auction while there was live bidding going on. They earned about $1000 each at the live auction!

SO interesting to hear about 4-H in Texas. And always so interesting to learn how different it is in every state. I am the leader of a club in Nebraska and things seem pretty different here. No auctions and projects get a purple, blue, red, or white ribbon. So someone pays $1000 and then they get the item?
