Lots of 4-H members like to exhibit the things they've made at the fair. Judges compare the quality of the member's entry against a list of "standards"--qualities of a good product.

Members may enter products they've made in the county fair. An entry in the county fair which meets and exceeds the standard may be selected to represent the county in the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville.
