Barry County 4-H News

Our 4-H members had great successes at the local fairs, Purdy Festival, Ozark Empire Fair and State Fair this summer.  Barry County was well represented and the projects were incredibly reflective of the hard work these kids have put into their project areas over the past year.  
Purdy Festival - 54 Entries
49 of the entries made it to Ozark Empire Fair, 27 Blue Ribbons were received along with 2 Reserve Champion Ribbons and 1 Grand Champion Ribbon.  
Congratulations to ALL of our 4-H Members!  Keep up the great work and looking forward to see what you can accomplish next year!
