Guthrie County Extension 4-H Coordinator Mollie Clark says they had over 500 static exhibits submitted last Monday, but only a maximum number of 30 entries qualified for the state fair. She explains what the most impressive thing is for her about the static exhibits.

“The kids are so amazing and the different ideas they come up with. We have a rocket stove that a kid designed himself. And we have a barbecue pit that a kid made out of old tire rims and they’re interests that come through.”Guthrie County Static Exhibits pic 1

As far as livestock, Clark says they have about 20 kids registered for next month’s state fair. She points out one area that’s really seen a large increase is the number of poultry for the county fair.

“We have 393 birds that were identified on May 15th. So that is more than what the Nebraska State Fair has. So we have a ton of birds, which is great.”
