Barnyard Olympics a clean sweep for Northwest 4-H

Bourbon County 4-H’ers competed in all kinds of barnyard-inspired games this afternoon at the Bourbon County Fair. Olympics teams consisted of 4-H members, community members “over 40” and one celebrity member from the community for each team. Clubs represented were Barnstormers, Northeast, Northwest, Uniontown and Hiatville 4-H clubs.

Events included balloon herding, wheel barrow barrel races, an Oreo eating contest and relay races involving fly swatters, a course, water, sponges and balloons. Needless to say, peels of laughter rang out from both spectators and participants as each competition presented them with a new challenge. Events were officiated by Drew George, a former member of Uniontown 4-H. The Northwest 4-H club ended up with the cumulative high score for the event.
