Swain County’s 4-H Exhibit Wins 1st Place at NC State Fair
The North Carolina State Fair features and sponsors annually 4-H exhibits developed by five selected counties representing each of the five Extension Districts. This years exhibitors were Swain, Edgecombe, Carteret, Stokes, and Gaston Counties. The exhibits were located in the Education Building on the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh.
The theme for the 2016 State Fair 4-H Exhibits is “4-H Grows”. This theme should represent the 4-H Program in each county, highlighting the various programs, clubs and events offered. Swain County chose the theme: “4-H Grows in Mountain Tradition”. Our booth depicted that theme in every way. From the clogging dress (Tangled Feet Stompers/4-H Tangled Tots clogging) and table setting (etiquette) to the sewn Swain County 4-H flag and the pumpkin patch (gardening). We are so proud of our mountain heritage and how teaching 4-H youth these traditions can continue the legacy for many more generations.
