Monmouth, IL, Warren County 4-H members showcased their projects at the Warren County 4-H General Project Show on June 26. 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 Warren County 4-H Livestock Show is scheduled to take place at the Warren County Fairgrounds July 21 and 22.
During the Warren County 4-H General Project Show, 4-H members met with experts in their project areas and discussed what they learned over the course of the year. Projects ranged 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.”
Warren 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 Warren County 4-H
Show in person, photo highlights and livestream of the livestock shows can be found on the
