Lawrence County 4-H State Fair Results

LLAWRENCE COUNTY - AUGUST 8, 2023 - Lawrence County 4-H is proud to announce the 2023 State Fair results for our very talented exhibitors.


"We are beyond proud of all of our members who displayed hard work and dedication in all of their exhibits at our county fair, and on the state level," said Leslie Lodmell.

Ribbon placement is done slightly different on the state level than it is at our county fair.

Below is a list of what each ribbon indicates:

 Green – Participation

 White – Poorly constructed or barely meets exhibit requirements

 Red – Adequately constructed or does not fully meet exhibit requirements

 Blue – Very complete exhibit; meets exhibit requirements, and is well constructed

 Orange – Exceptional blue ribbon exhibit (Merit)

 Sweepstakes is awarded to the best overall exhibit in that 4-H project subject matter area.

This year, our exhibitors did an exceptional job in bringing home more orange ribbons than we have seen in years prior! Below is a list of the exhibitor and their project that received an orange merit ribbon:

 Joe Newton-Pursell – Arts & Crafts: Limestone carving of a globe on pedestal
