In our eyes, all 4-H exhibitors at the Steele County Free Fair are winners. They put the time in to learn about their projects, and create something new, and then put it forward for judging against the work of their peers. That takes bravery and skill, which we here at KRFO/Kat Kountry 105 applaud.

But we also know that someone has to be the best, and we salute some of those champions. Check out our slide show above to see which champion projects caught our eye. To see all the 4-H champion projects, take a swing through the 4-H building. And don't forget to visit the barns to see what champion animals look like. Those kids worked hard to get their animals in top shape!

We're especially fond of the goats in coats.
