BALLSTON SPA — Saratoga County 4-H participated in their first full fair since 2019 at last week’s 2022 Saratoga County Fair.

Two hundred youth, with 900 static exbibits and 500 animal exhibits represented Saratoga County 4-H at this past week’s Saratoga County Fair. All species of animals were welcome to return in 2022. Dozens of others participated in Robotics Demonstrations. Other youth and adults learned the food service industry by participating in a youth-run adult supported 4-H Snack Bar. 

The Fred Sanders Memorial Award is given out each year at the County Fair and goes to the individual who has met certain criteria and participated in the 4-H Dairy Program throughout the whole year. This year’s winner was Wyatt Swatling. Wyatt joins his brother and sister as past recipients of this award.

Finally, through all of the excitement and success, 4-H had the opportunity to promote their Lead The Legacy Campaign. Saratoga County 4-H is currently raising funds for a new Educational Facility at the 4-H Training Center. For more information about this, please go to
