2020 Vanderburgh County Fair winners announced virtually

VANDERBURGH CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Students participating in the 2020 Vanderburgh County 4-H Fair received their results a little differently this year.

Back in May, the Vanderburgh County Fair Associations Board of Directors announced that all in-person activities for this year’s fair had been canceled.

However, 4-H members were still able to participate in a virtual fair to display their projects and have them judged.

Winners were announced online through a series of YouTube videos.

“The true spirit of 4-H is to learn life skills and be resilient,” 4-H Youth Development Extension Educator Megan Hoffherr said. “So I feel like all of our 4-H members took that in stride, and still were able to showcase all of their hard work just in a different format.”

Officials say over 1,500 projects were sent to judges for this year’s fair through video, photo, or virtual document submissions.
