4-H’ers enter Hay Bale contest

Mitchell County 4-Her’s did a great job preparing and setting up for the 4-H Hay Bale Decorating Contest at the NC State Fairgrounds in Raleigh.

4-Her’s in counties from across the state can participate in the contest. Everything, including square bales used for decorating, was made within Mitchell County and then carried to Raleigh for set up.

This year 4-H’ers created a honeypot display with bees and flowers.

The hay bales were judged Oct. 11 and they were available for public viewing Oct. 12-22.

The entry in the 4-H Hay Bale Decorating Contest received First Premium.
