"All of these kids have worked all year long on their showmanship techniques and with their animals," said Sarah Jackson, Jr. Fair 4-H Program assistant. "So, it's kind of a showcase of who the best showman is. Not only in their individual departments but overall kind of handling each animal."

Winner and runner up received a blanket and banner.
