The time of the year that everyone with even a tinge of green in their blood looks forward to is now upon us—Cloverville and the Kentucky State Fair.
The Kentucky State Fair is Aug. 18-28. Cloverville is a village-like area located in the West Hall of the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, where 4-H’ers have the opportunity to showcase their very best work to the entire state. The fair is the culminating event for 4-H’ers who have put countless hours of research and preparation into their projects.

LEXINGTON, Ky., (June 27, 2016) – More than 300 Kentucky young people will become “style engineers” this summer, thanks to a grant Kentucky 4-H received from HughesNet and the National 4-H Council.
The Style Engineers—Fashion through Science program will show 4-H’ers at University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service day and residential camps how fashion design is connected to science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The curriculum includes real-world activities to emphasize these fields.

4-H livestock and dairy shows are some of the most widely recognized and anticipated events of county fairs and the Kentucky State Fair. While these competitions are meant to be a fun, learning experience for 4-H’ers, some get caught up in the competitive spirit of the event, which can cause hurt feelings if a youth or animal doesn’t place as high as expected.
