POMEROY — Members of the 4-H organization in Meigs County finished pre-fair judging with food and fashion project judging on Friday.

The style review took place Friday evening at the Meigs County Senior Center on Memorial Drive in Pomeroy. Members who participated in a clothing project presented their outfits and quilts to complete their requirements.

Cloverbuds — younger members in Kindergarten through second grade — had the opportunity to show and tell about fun activities they’ve been working on with their 4-H groups. These ranged from building Lego sets, helping care for animals, learning to sew, and doing other crafts.

Lakin Ridenour was nominated for the Rising Star State Award. Each county can nominate one member between the ages of 8 and 11 for this award. Ridenour must compete at the Ohio State Fair with her clothing project to be considered for the award.
