There were 37 projects on display, rep- resenting the different interests of Walsh County 4- Hers. In this event, 4-H members set up an educational display to "tell a story" about a 4-H project they are enrolled in, and then are questioned by judges on their knowledge of the subject. Walsh County 4-H'ers cre- atively represented projects from magnets, fishing and welding to foods, science discovery, crafts, health and horses. The following youth received high honors in their category. Winners will advance to the State Fair com- petition in July.
