PRINCETON — The Bureau County 4-H Fair is well under way, and Thursday afternoon 4-Hers had a chance to unwind during the third annual Ag Olympics.

Bureau County Farm Bureau sponsors Ag Olympics each year to promote agriculture, teamwork and fun.

“The kids come out to the fair and they’re so serious in all their programming and interviews,” said Bureau County Farm Bureau manager Jill Frueh. “We want them to have fun and work together as a team.”

It appears the kids indeed had fun, and were challenged at the same time, while participating in games such as the holey bucket, egg and spoon, potato relay, dizzy cowboy, water balloon toss and a blindfold challenge.

“My favorite game was the holey bucket because it was hard to get the water in the bucket,” said 9-year-old Samuel Wright of the Manlius club.

But the games aren’t necessarily the best part for some competitors.

“My favorite part is hanging out with everyone and having fun,” said 10-year-old Delaney Mallery of Open Door 4-H Club.

The winners of each game were awarded prizes, including Dairy Queen Dilly Bars.

The 4-H fair will continue through Sunday, July 27 at the Bureau County Fairgrounds.
