Betsy Reasonís daughter earned Champion in the Hamilton County 4-H Fair Consumer Clothing Beginner category and her project entry will go to the Indiana State Fair.
Every year at this time, I'm sad to see the Hamilton County 4-H Fair come to a close. We've enjoyed five days of food, fun and 4-H projects.
On Thursday, opening day of the Fair, my daughter, in addition to her Blue and Honor ribbons for the 4-H Photography project, she also earned a blue ribbon for her 4-H Health project. It was a poster about first aid for burns.
On Friday night, at the public Fashion Revue, she modeled an outfit that she put together for the 4-H Consumer Clothing project, for which a notebook and judges' interview played a role in the overall grade.
At the end of the Revue, I am proud to say that she was named Champion in the Consumer Clothing Beginner category, and her modeled outfit was put on display with other champions' pieces for the duration of the Fair. Her notebook will move on for competition at the Indiana State Fair.
On Saturday night, she earned second place in the hand-crank youth division of the Homemade Ice Cream Contest with her pink Cotton Candy ice cream. Peanut-butter banana took first place in the division. Every year, she does well. Last year, her key-lime pie ice cream won overall champion in the contest, even beating out the adults.
On Sunday, she competed in the Youth Pedal Tractor Pull, which annually is sponsored by the Hamilton County Young Farmers and asks for a donation of one canned food item per entry or $1 donation for a food pantry. A tractor is provided, with one pull per child. Needless to say, she didn't get very far but it was fun for all of the kids, ages 4-15, who participated.
On Monday, my daughter competed for the second year in the Junior Division of the Youth Talent Contest and took home a Champion in the Clogging Solo division and will compete at the Indiana State Fair on Aug. 19.
Overall, it was a great time at the 4-H Fair. We saw a lot of friends and made some new ones.
And I want to thank all of the folks who came up and said "Hello" and introduced themselves.
