A Washington County 4-H’er received a purple ribbon for a poultry exhibit at the Iowa State Fair. Jonah Van Roekel was awarded a purple ribbon in the Broiles Special Division while Eli Van Roekel and Hannah Van Roekel each received blue ribbons.

All of the birds in this class were hatched on the same day at the same hatchery and 4-H’ers then grow the best bird in comparison to others in this class.

All of the Washington poultry exhibitors this year are from Wellman and are the children of Marty and Marianne Van Roekel.
