4-H members, from a youth organization administered by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, worked all year getting ready for Wednesday. The 4-H motto is “Learn By Doing.” Many young people are working hard to earn Excellent, Good or Worthy ribbons and to earn the honor of representing Niagara County at the New York State Fair. Entries for different competitions include animal science, plant science, social science, nutritional science, mechanical science and natural sciences.

Proceeds from the fair support CCE-Niagara County programming that benefits children and families of Niagara County

The fair begins Wednesday at 10 a.m. and ends Sunday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
