Four-H and FFA members met with judges Tuesday to talk about projects ranging from posters to photography to robotics at this year's Sheridan County Fair.

Donna Birkholz, who's the indoor committee superintendent, said those are the projects that go on exhibit in the Exhibit Hall during the event.

Birkholz said the event is mainly non-livestock related, although there are some informational projects related to livestock in the event.

Birkholz didn't have a count on the total number of youth or projects in this year's static exhibits, but she said there are more than 160 entries just in photography.

Following the judging, the Exhibit Hall was closed Tuesday for decorating of club booths.

Also on Tuesday, the first of this year's horse shows started at 1 p.m. These were team sorting, working cow horse and speed horse events.

The horse show will continue Wednesday with western events starting at 8 a.m. Also Wednesday, the cat show is scheduled at 10 a.m. in the Exhibit Hall, and the Exhibit Hall awards and fashion review are scheduled to start at 6 p.m.

The Exhibit Hall will open at 9 a.m. Thursday, and open class exhibits will be accepted starting then.
