Celebrating Youth at the Second Brunswick County 4-H Fair

— Written By

Brunswick County 4-H members shared their 4-H projects with the community on Saturday, October 11th, at the Cooperative Extension Service office in Bolivia, NC. Projects represent the work 4-H members have done over the course of the year within their 4-H clubs. The Brunswick COunty 4-H Fair is planned each year by adult and youth volunteers who serve on the Brunswick County 4-H Fair Board and work with the county 4-H office to plan the event. This year, twenty-three local businesses and individuals sponsored the event making it possible to give cash prizes in every class and division – see list of winners below!

This year, the Fair Board added the Brunswick County 4-H Sportsmanship Cup. It is a perpetual trophy awarded to a member who demonstrates fairness, ethics, respect, and a sense of fellowship throughout competition. Youth were nominated by volunteers and members and the five nominees chose among themselves to determine the winner. Ms. Rebekah Taylor of Southport is this year’s recipient of the Sportsmanship Cup.
