Last Wednesday and Thursday Clermont County 4-H completed their General Project judging. Our judges saw 235 projects from our 4-H members. Projects this year were very creative and presented in unique ways. This year we were also able to offer a virtual judging option for those that could not compete in person. We were very lucky to have 24 fantastic judges and many volunteers to help us complete judging for this year. Be on the lookout for these amazing projects displayed at our 2021 Clermont County Fair. Thank you to all of our judges and volunteers for making judging this year possible. Congratulations to all the Clermont County 4-H members who have completed 2021 4-H project judging.
