Fair Season is Here
Finally, fair season is here! It’s the time of year that many of us look forward to all year long. Fairs are a place where we can showcase the skills we have learned from our projects and make memories with our friends and family. We’ve put so much time and effort into our projects this year and most of us can’t wait to walk into that show ring. As we walk in with big smiles and hopeful hearts, sometimes we can be disappointed when we are called to stand in the lower ranks of the class. However, it’s not the place in the class or color of the ribbon that makes us who we are. It’s the work that we’ve done, the ethics we put into play, and the connections we have made that truly matter. Sure it’s a lot of fun to win, but that’s not what the fair is all about. This year focus on what’s happening around you, and see the positive side of things. Talk to other kids in your barns and make a new friend. Don’t focus on winning, just keep on working. A trophy lasts a year, but a friendship could last a lifetime.
