2013 Minnesota State Fair
Minnesota 4-H’ers from 87 counties exhibited over 2,800 projects in the 4-H Building at the 2013 Minnesota State Fair. Over 2,800 animals competed in 4-H Livestock Shows. These 4-H’ers all placed high at their county fairs with their projects and animals, thereby earning them the top honor of showing at the State Fair this year.

Education is integral in the “learn by doing” philosophy of 4-H. Though the projects and animals shown at fairs during the summer get a lot of attention, 4-H is really about developing “purple ribbon kids” throughout the year. Participation in 4-H provides all 4-H youth with critical experiences and skills - such as communicating, problem solving, and decision making – which will serve them throughout their lives.

The spectacular array of 4-H projects exhibited this year spanned a wide range of topic areas, including robotics, alternative energy, aerospace, photography, performing arts, clothing, small engines, geology, flower gardening, landscaping, wildlife biology, fine arts and much more.
