The Youth Market Turkey Show was held on Friday, October 12, 2012 at the NC State Fair. Pender County 4-H had two youth participants in the show. The Youth Market Turkey Show program begins right as school lets out in June when youth travel to Raleigh to pick up their turkey poults. They spend the next 5 months raising their turkeys to bring their best turkey to the turkey show held at the State Fair each year in October. This year there were 14 classes resulting in a total of 182 youth participants and turkeys.
In addition to the Youth Market Turkey Show- there are 4-H exhibits, hay bales, craft/photography entries, and MORE related to 4-H!!! Coastal Explorer 4-H Members, Liz & Samantha Sharpe entered crafts into the State Fair this year!
