“Fairadise” Doesn’t Just Happen In July

Kansas 4-H is enhancing youth to grow into tomorrow’s leaders right here in Greenwood County. With seven 4-H clubs in Greenwood County, 4-H leaders, volunteers and families are encouraging and mentoring youth ages 8-18 to become leaders in our communities and helping them to achieve success both now and in their futures. It should be no surprise then that these remarkable characteristics appear when Kansas youth are surveyed: 95% show an increased effort to allow everyone to have a voice, the desire to treat everyone fairly and they are also comfortable making their own decisions. Those are leadership skills worth noting because if you think “county fair” when you think of 4-H, you may be missing out on a whole lot more that 4-H has to offer.

The theme “Fairadise” was chosen for this year’s county fair from those submitted from 4-H clubs county wide. Cudos to the Madison Pacesetters club who submitted this design! It encompasses all kinds of learning experiences that 4-H offers-from livestock to communications, life skills and community. Fairadise tells a big story! The county fair annually showcases the projects from each 4-H’ers learning experiences for just a few days at the end of July. Most of these exhibits are the products of dreams turned in to goals, and goals becoming actions that, like life, are not always successful but become lessons learned.
