Lawrence County 4-H County Fair
  The Lawrence County 4-H Fair begins on Saturday, July 23 and closes on Friday, July 29. General projects are judged on July 21. Over the past year, 4-H club members throughout our county have been preparing for this week. With projects that range from Livestock to Foods to Woodworking to Rock Collecting to Visual Arts, 4-Hers are excited to show off their achievements to the public.
   The variety of 4-H events at the county fair include robotics, rocketry and photography displays, livestock and small animal judging, horse competitions, and much, much more! Through preparing and showcasing their talents, these events offer our youth exceptional learning experiences needed to build self-confidence and maturity. But most of all, 4-Hers enjoy showing what they have learned to the community that has encouraged them along the way!
