While school is out for the summer students at Rich Hill are not just sleeping late and hanging around the pool. Several students from the Rich Hill school district took projects to the Bates County Fair in Butler this past week. Students who are member in local 4-H clubs and the Rich Hill FFA showed projects in the building bringing home many ribbons for their efforts.
Many students also had livestock projects that were presented during the fair week. They included chickens, rabbits, goats, market hogs, and steers. Students showed their animals at the individual livestock shows. Friday evening members of the community gathered for the annual livestock sale which also included the sale of hams produced by youth. Bidders from local businesses and other fair supporters competed to purchase the premium on the youth livestock projects. It was a successful night for the Rich Hill students. Pictured are those students who sold their animals and hams at the auction.
