Congratulations to 4-H state placers and Class Champions- the highest award at State

Mia Phillips and Kendall Phillips




Each year a "town" is built on the Kentucky State Fair Grounds in Louisville, Ky.  The citizens of Cloverville, a 4-H village, will put their skills on display in this unique fair exhibit.  Several 4-H members from Wayne County were showcased in Cloverville.

4-H youth projects from all over Kentucky were on display when Cloverville opened on August 18 during the opening day of the Kentucky State Fair.  Cloverville is made up of many unique booths made to look like a small town. 

Clovervillle gives 4-H members a chance to showcase their work.  Project categories include: entomology, forestry, electric, foods, horticulture, woodworking, clothing, home environment, arts, crafts, communication and photography.  Entries are judged a few days before the fair begins and displayed for the remainder of the fair.

To be eligible to participate in Cloverville, you first must have been a class champion at the local county fair.  This year, there were five youth representing Wayne County.  The following awards were presented to those who participated:
