N.D. State Fair (7/31/2012)

Last week I was able to attend a thoroughly enjoyable day and a half at the N.D. State Fair. Kudos to county staff, the Center for 4-H Youth Development and specialists for great effort on their part in making the Extension presence there a success. The number of 4-H exhibits was a fantastic 9,300 this year! I just think of the number of kids that this represents, and the skills and knowledge gained by these youth (and parents too). And this is just a subset of the county fairs and achievement days held across the state. It’s good to see that 4-H is alive and well in North Dakota and is an important part of NDSU Extension.

Thanks also go out to Ag Communication for pushing out news releases on results of the shows and exhibits.
