**The grand and reserve champion Outstanding Youth Project is based on the exhibitor’s skillathon, showmanship and live animal conformation scores.

*** Bidders were not bidding on the exact chickens the 4-H’ers raised this year. When the chickens were processed, there was no USDA inspector onsite, therefore the chickens were not able to be sold. To compensate for this, the senior fairboard purchased chickens for the youth to sell. Instead of getting three chickens as in the past, bidders received a fourth chicken as a way to thank bidders for their support.

**** The carcass turkeys were replaced with live market turkeys raised by carcass winners.
