Top projects from every county fair in the state will help put youth members of 4-H and FFA at the center of attention at the State Fair.

Beth Janning, who works with the youth groups from the Adams County Extension office, calls the State Fair an exciting time and one they truly enjoy.

"When we think about the State Fair, it's our youth that are doing it," said Janning. "Being able to showcase what our youth have worked for and what they worked hard on - they are the best of the best in their category."

Janning points out that they will be static displays all week in the 4-H/FFA building, which is located on the north end of the State Fair grounds. There will be competitions throughout the week, a fashion show on Sunday, and Grand Champions crowned in livestock later in the fair.

More information on their schedule can be found in the 4-H section of the
