Edmonson Voice Staff Report:
Edmonson County was well represented at the Kentucky State Fair. The fair hosts 4-H projects from across the state in Cloverville. Cloverville consists of 18 divisions where 4-H'ers can showcase their projects. In order to exhibit a 4-H project in Cloverville, 4-H'ers must first compete in their county and be selected as the champion in the class. These champions advance to the Kentucky State Fair and are exhibited in Cloverville where they are judged on the Danish System. The Danish system awards all entries a ribbon based on their quality. Purple= excels, denotes champion of a class. Blue=excellent, Red=good, White= fair.
Lillian Harmon, daughter of Laura Harmon and Scott Harmon, brought home grand champion in foods with her double crusted apple pie. Lillian competed against 437 other food entries from across the state. Lillian is a member of the 4-H Outdoors Club in Edmonson County. This is Lillian’s second year bringing home a grand champion. Last year her strawberry jam won grand champion in food preservation.
In addition, this year members of Edmonson County’s Community 4-H Club, The Outdoors Club, competed in several categories.
