State fair 4-H photos offer glimpse of Kansas

Kansas

Visitors to 4-H Centennial Hall at the Kansas State Fair are encouraged to allow 30--or more--minutes to tour the building.

"More is better," said Rod Buchele, who is expecting more than 2,000 entries from 4-H photography project participants.

"A majority of the photos were taken in Kansas," said Buchele, who said "viewing them will offer a unique glimpse of Kansas' scenic landscape, people, places and events."

Each of the photos must first earn a top award at a local fair to qualify for entry at the state level, said Buchele, who is a K-State Research and Extension area 4-H youth development specialist and state liaison for the photography project.

"Photography is one of the most popular 4-H projects, and it is one that often serves as the foundation for a lifelong interest," said Buchele, who noted that the project also is one that teaches decision-making skills and the use of technology as youth learn the capabilities of their digital cameras.

Admission to the building is free. Visiting 4-H Centennial Hall is recommended for families considering youth development opportunities, Buchele said. "There's something for everyone. The variety of the exhibits, even within a specific project, is inspiring," he said.

The Kansas State Fair opens Sept. 7 and continues through Sept. 16; 4-H Centennial Hall is located at the north end of the fairgrounds.
