4-H/Youth Development - Exciting things happening in Cloverville

Source: Kim Leger, 4-H youth development specialist The Kentucky State Fair is just around the corner, and we are so excited about the changes happening in Cloverville, Kentucky 4-H’s village-like area.

Cloverville is moving to the South Wing of the Kentucky Exposition Center to be a part of the fair’s newly created AgLand, which highlights Kentucky’s agricultural heritage. As part of the move, Cloverville is getting an exciting new look, including streets named for the four H’s in 4-H (Head, Heart, Hands and Health). These streets will help you navigate through the exhibit.

Of course, Cloverville would not be the showcase it is without projects from 4-Hers in all 120 counties. Cloverville provides Kentucky 4-H with a fabulous opportunity to showcase the immense talent, hard work and dedication of these young Kentuckians. The state fair is the culminating event for these Kentucky 4-H projects that are vying for one more blue ribbon. These projects are already winners, having advanced through their county, and sometimes regional, contests to get to this point. They truly do represent the best of Kentucky.

In addition to the projects, Cloverville is home to live showcases and hands-on contests that allow 4-H members to display their natural talents and abilities and to entertain fairgoers. Different events occur each day. To see the Cloverville schedule, visit https://4-h.ca.uky.edu/2018-state-fair-schedule-and-general-rules. The Kentucky State Fair is Aug. 16-26 in Louisville. More information on Cloverville is available at the Woodford County Extension office.
