Jo Davies County Fair

Fair Judges

Judges at Jo Davies County Fair

What an exciting day that we had at the Jo Davies County Fair. Both Kris and I were asked to come back for the second year in a row to judge the 4-H Photography entries. Kris judged the Photography II group while I had the privilege to judge the Photography III and Digital Editing groups. We both want to thank Connie Kickbush and Sue Droessler for all their help and coordination of the photography judging! Kris and I cannot get over how much the kids have learned in the past year.  The last three years we have offered 4-H workshops for these kids and you can really see from the fair entries that they were paying attention. We love to give back to our industry and to share our passion in photography.  Working with 4-H is just one of the many ways we insure there is a future generation of photography lovers out there. Congratulations to all of the ribbon winners this year and we are rooting for everyone that will go on to compete at the Illinois State Fair August 13th-23rd in Springfield, IL. If you have time July 30th - August 2nd I would encourage you to check out the Jo Davies County Fair in Elizabeth, Illinois.  It is a great small town fair with many wonderful exhibits the 4-H kids have put together.
