One division after another, youth are seeing the fruits of their labor at the Kewaunee County Fair in Luxemburg. Ribbons dotted the junior fair projects inside the exposition hall as judges continued to rate the best of the best in the open class. Pilsen Skylighters member Megan Salentine saw her ice cream quilt get first place and best in show ribbons before the Wisconsin State Fair deemed it worthy of its show next month. Salentine says it is great to see the talents of so many in the community.
Out in the barns, many were waiting for their chance to display their animals while others were walking back from the show ring with their own ribbons. Junior Fairest of the Fair Savannah Bailey will be handing out several awards herself, but she was happy the ram she got to show walked away with a blue ribbon.
Judging of other animals runs through Sunday morning, highlighted by the round-robin showmanship competition Friday night at 6:30 p.m.
