In the News

The Peoria Journal Star was one of many Illinois newspapers to share the story of the Governor's Sale of Champions at the Illinois State Fair. We are particularly excited about this article because it features two of our Peoria County 4-H members. Olivia Caldwell won Grand Champion Steer and Carrie Gill won Grand Champion Market Pen of Poultry.

Read more of their story here.
