4-H members were asked to be submit videos about the animal species they would typically bring to the Saratoga County Fair. You can watch them below.

This Video challenge provided youth an opportunity to show case their animals and knowledge of the species they care for. Videos were judged by educators and animal science professionals on Wednesday, July 22 and winners were awarded on Thursday the 24th.

The Saratoga County Fair is the most anticipated event of the year for 4-H members. Youth work year round to breed, care for, and prepare their animals to be shown at this annual event. In the past, around 200 youth across the county participate in animal shows, species including: dairy cattle, beef cattle, horses, rabbits, sheep, goats and more! Youth and their animals are judged for cleanliness, animal confirmation, genetics, and other aspects of animal health. The cancelation of the Saratoga County Fair was devastating, yet youth came together to exhibit their animal in a fun and educational way.

The Youth Video Challenge for the Virtual Saratoga County Fair had three categories, Cloverbud (ages 8 and under), Jr. (Ages 9-12), and Sr. (ages 13-18). Cloverbuds receive participation awards and first, second and third place trophies were given to the top three videos submitted.
