Liberty-Benton FFA members Lauren Burner, Jordan Wright, and Amber Dick enjoyed the honor of becoming Hancock County Fair royalty for the fair that ran from August 29th – September 3rd. Lauren Burner was selected as Beef Queen, Jordan Wright Poultry King, and Amber Dick Goat Princess.
Chapter members also submitted a variety of projects in the fair.

Some of the featured animals in this year’s fair by L-B FFA members were rabbits, horses, and chickens. Members also exhibited other animals in open class and 4-H.
Chapter members also participated in volunteer work at the fair. On Saturday, September 1st L-B FFA members worked at the Hancock County Sheep Improvement Association Lamb Stand. Sunday, September 2nd FFA members worked at the Pork Producers Tent. Finally, on Monday, September 3rd FFA members worked at the Farm Bureau Ag Tent. In addition, several students and family members helped with taking projects to the fair, setting up for the fair, taking projects down, as well as bringing them back to the Liberty-Benton High School Ag Shop. The L-B FFA would like to extend a special thanks to all of those individuals who participated in showing projects and animals at the fair as well as helping out at this year’s Hancock County Fair.
