Edmonson County was well represented at the Kentucky State Fair in August. 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 grand champion in the class. These grand champions advance to the Kentucky State Fair and are exhibited in Cloverville where they are judged on the Danish System.
One 4-H’er excelled in the Food Division that had 375 entries. Emily Davis of Brownsville, daughter of Matt & Jennifer Davis, competed in Class 848 - Baking powder biscuits. Emily won class champion with her delicious homemade biscuits. Her biscuits then competed against the other class winners. Emily received Reserve Champion in the Foods Division. This is the second highest honor she could receive.
Other 4-H’ers also competed in the state fair.
