Edmonson County was well represented during the recent Kentucky State Fair. The fair hosts 4-H projects from across the state in Cloverville, which 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.
Hannah Vincent, daughter of Jeremy & Jennifer Vincent, won class champion in Class 907 Heritage Experience. In this class, Hannah had to learn a heritage skill, created a project and submit written documentation about the project. Her grandmother, Shelia Vincent, taught her how to sew, then Hannah completed Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, and provided documentation about the experience.
