"Working ou project exhibits for county fair allows time for families to come together." said Diane Mack. Kan- sas State University Research and Ex- tension north east area 4-H and youth specialist. "'As an example, usually the whole family has a part in the, garden. Each 4-H member may have his or her area that is theirs to plan, plant, weed, water and harvest." Sparking interest in educational ef- lbrts or post-harvest entertainment, fanfilies, also attract their friends and neighbors to the annual event. "Communities come together at county f:dr time." Mack said. "The fair is a place where everyone can find something that is of interest to them. The fair is a place to gather to meet folds and learn new things." Most lair-goers view the final prod- ucts as the showcased exhibits in both 4-H and open class divisions. "This finished work represents a young per- son learning new skills, setting goals and accomplishing the work needed to display the project at the fair." "Even though county fair time is hectic with many activities going on at once, participants take pride in exhib- iting what they have created," she said. "An important goal of 4-H is to teach skills toyoung people that they can use now and later in life." "Direct feedback to 4-H members about their project work allows them to build their skills and lead-n, from their achievements and mistakes," she adds. "The evaluation process of a 4-H project at the county fair can be one of the most exciting parts of the total 4-H" experience. Through conference judg- ing, 4-H members are provided an op- portunity to visit with an evaluator to discuss how well they achieved and suggestions for improvement."
