Kane County—The 4-H small pets and cat shows will be held on Tuesday, July 12, at the Kane County Fairgrounds in St. Charles. Small Pets judging will begin at 5 p.m. and Cats judging will begin at 6 p.m.
During the project judging, 4-H members bring their completed small pets and cat projects to the fairgrounds for judging. As part of conference judging, the judge will talk with the 4-H’ers about their projects. The judge may ask questions about the small pet or cat, the 4-H’ers’ skills in caring for the animal, things the 4-H’ers would do differently next year in the project, or any other type of question they feel is relevant to the project exhibited.
4-H’ers work on their projects throughout the year. A lot of time and effort goes into the project work. In addition, much knowledge is gained by the youth through their project work.
If you are interested in small pets or cats, please feel free to attend the shows on Tuesday, July 12.
