Area youth earn honors at DuPage County Fair

Scores of local youth participated in the 60th annual DuPage County Fair through their 4-H projects and animal shows.

“Whether it’s in robotics or rabbits, our 4-H members work for months in their project areas. They strive to learn new skills and develop talents, which they then demonstrate through 4-H exhibits at the annual DuPage County Fair,” said Christine Birns, 4-H Youth Development Program coordinator.
