Ellie Edwards, a 2020 graduate of Central Crossing High School in Grove City and a member of the LFS Riders 4-H Club, raised the Grand Champion pen of three broilers at the Madison County Fair. The Orient resident also placed first in poultry showmanship for 17- and 18-year-olds. This was her eighth year showing poultry.
Luke Peart, 16, of the Prairie Raiders 4-H Club and London FFA was outstanding with his beekeeping project and best overall natural resources project. He also took market ducks and had the grand champion pen this year. He was second in showmanship for 16-year-olds, top three for the senior division, and fifth overall showman of poultry. He also served as the fair prince as royalty titles were frozen from last year due to COVID-19.

“Pepper” jumps over the 36-foot benchmark during the mule show. His handler, Dean Harris, said he started mule riding four years ago because he loves donkeys and loves riding and wanted to combine his two passions. The London teenager is a member of the LFS Riders 4-H Club.
