ANTIGO - Kids will get the chance to show off their projects at the Langlade County Youth Fair starting Wednesday. The fair gives kids the chance to win awards for a lot of different things.
Langlade County is one of only a few counties in Wisconsin that give kids such a big role at a fair.
Kids work on the projects for months. Fair organizers think it's important to recognize them for their hard work.
"It's really important because they dedicate a lot of time in working on these projects," said 4-H youth development educator Krista Otto. "It shows their talents and their skills. It's the one big event [for them] to say this is what I've been doing and I'm excited to show it."
Kids will submit artwork, photos, sculptures and many other things for judging. The projects give kids a chance to be creative and responsible.
"We have a lot of 4-H youth that are showing animals as well. It's the whole process of taking care of the animal, learning how to prepare for it and bringing it to the fair and getting judged."
The fair starts Wednesday and ends on Saturday.
