Twenty-two Bond County 4-H members attended the Illinois State Fair on August 13 to exhibit their 4-H general projects. They were selected as delegates in their project areas at the 4-H general projects show held in July.
Much like at the county 4-H show, members participate in conference judging at the state 4-H show. They meet with a judge to discuss their project. Each exhibit is given a rating of either Award of Excellence, or Superior. Eight members from Bond County received the Superior rating this year.
