Knox County 4-H Members Showcase Project Knowledge at 2021 4-H Show

Galesburg, Il., July 7, 2021: Knox County 4-H members will showcase their projects at the Knox

County 4-H Show. The 4-H show is an opportunity for youth ages 8-18 to showcase their mastery

in the project areas they have studied over the course of the 2020-2021 4-H year. The Knox

County 4-H General Show is scheduled to take place at Knoxville High School on July 10. On

July 12 and 13, youth will exhibit their livestock projects at the Knox County Fairgrounds.

During the Knox County 4-H General Project Show, 4-H members will meet with experts in their

project areas and discuss what they have learned over the course of the year. Projects range

from civic engagement and computer science, vet science and visual arts, to weather and

woodworking. In addition to participating in the General Project Show, 4-H members have the

opportunity to compete with their livestock.

One 4-H member said of their experience, “The 4-H fair is my favorite thing about summer. I’m

always telling my friends stories about the fair!” Shelby Carlson, 4-H Youth Development

Educator encourages those considering joining 4-H to, “Come on out to the fair and see all that

someone can do as part of 4-H. 4-H isn’t just for farm kids, it’s for any young person who wants

to learn in a hands on way.”

Knox County 4-H and University of Illinois Extension will align with current CDC, IDPH, and

University of Illinois campus COVID guidelines. For those unable to visit the Knox County 4-H

Show in person, photo highlights and livestream of the livestock shows can be found on the Knox

County 4-H Facebook page.
