Minnesota 4-H’ers from 87 counties along with over 2,800 projects were judged in the 4-H building at the 2013 Minnesota State Fair. Every 4-H’er present placed high at their county fairs with their projects, thereby earning them the top honor of showing at the State Fair this year.
4-H focuses on the philosophy of “learn by doing”.
