SAUK RAPIDS - Great food, tons of different animals, creative exhibits and even a fashion show are just a few of the great attractions 4-H members brought to the Benton County Fair.

Ann Olson is the Benton County 4-H Program Coordinator. She says that the members talents really show up in their exhibits.

'We have a 4-H exhibit building that has around 1,000 different exhibits. The skills these kids have is amazing."

While 4-H has it's roots firmly planted in local agriculture. Olson says there are now more and more opportunities for people who are not involved with farming.

"There are so many amazing opportunities (at 4-H). From aerospace, to llamas, to fashion, to pets, robotics. You name it."

Outside of exhibitions and animal shows, Benton County 4-H also serves burgers, fries and a slice of pie to help fund raise for 4-H.
