The Ohio State University Extension office of Champaign County would like to offer our congratulations to the following young people who represented us very well as they competed and placed in their respective classes at the Ohio State Fair. These 4-H members have not only excelled at the county level, but have also excelled at the state level as they competed with the other elite participants from counties across the state. Outstanding indicates that the participant placed in the top 40% of the class. The Clock Trophy signifies the highest award in the state for that particular project....
