The Wood County 4-H & FFA Summer Showcase wrapped up with a very successful livestock
sale. Thanks to a dedicated, hard-working group of volunteers, livestock buyers,
and donors to our livestock program, more than 150 youth showcased their 4-H and
FFA exhibits. There were 159 livestock projects exhibited, and 90 still projects.
CEOS (Community Educational Outreach Service) members exhibited more than 100 items.
Colton Parsons, 19-year-old member of the Saulsbury 4-H Club was awarded the honor
of Austin Shawver Master Showman of 2022 for the second straight year. The contest
provides participants who win grand champion senior showman in each livestock species
division an opportunity to compete for the title, and the winner receives a $1,000
scholarship sponsored by Kent Welding and Wards Farm Supply and a Belt Buckle sponsored
by Shawver Show Pigs.
