Call it the nice weather, the economic times, or an inexpensive fun-filled family event, but the annual 4-H Carnival held Saturday at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds can be deemed nothing but a success.

The parking lot was filled to overflowing and the Exhibition Hall was full up with shoulder-to-shoulder traffic.

Jerrica Lind, 4-H Youth Development Educator was amazed at the turn-out.

Different 4-H clubs from around the county set up booths with games ranging from bingo, the ring and bean bag toss, fishing, basketball, a cake walk and the favorite, the dunk tank. 

There was something for every age, including the adults, who could sit back and enjoy some great grub and it all was a fundraiser for 4-H.

4-H isn’t just for country kids anymore.

According to research, 4-H youth achieve higher marks in school, are more likely to attend college, and contribute to their communities at higher rates than their peers.
