The Kane County 4-H small pets and cat shows will be held Tuesday, July 10, at the Kane County Fairgrounds, 525 S. Randall Road in St. Charles. Small Pets judging will begin at 5 p.m. in the Trades 1 building and Cats judging will begin at 6 p.m. in the rabbit barn.
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'er about their project. The judge may ask questions about the small pet or cat, the 4H'ers skills in caring for the animal, things the 4-H'er 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. If you are interested in small pets or cats, feel free to attend the shows Tuesday, July 10.
