It was a good day for two Allen County 4-H members at the 50th Sale of Champions at the Ohio State Fair on Sunday.

14-year-old Addison Jones' Grand Champion Market Beef sold for $50,000. She is a member of the Auglaize Ag 4-H group over at Allen East. The Reserve Grand Champion Market Beef was also from the Auglaize Ag club. 13-year-old Montana Hulsmeyer's steer sold for $36,000.

Since 1995, the Ohio State Fair has put caps on the amount of money exhibitors can earn on the sales with the additional money going to a youth reserve program providing funds for scholarships. Jones earned $22,000 and Hulsmeyer garnering $11,000 from the sale.

Both young women will be showing pigs at the Allen County Fair later this month.
