“Exhibits at the Iowa State Fair demonstrate that 4-H’ers set goals for themselves and work to meet those goals throughout the year and their Exhibits celebrate accomplishments and provide a showcase to share with the public what was learned.” said Mitch Hoyer, 4-H youth development program specialist.
