On October 7 Lexington County 4-H Hosted the first annual Lexington County Pullet Show at South Congaree Arena in West Columbia.

At the show, 42 South Carolina 4-H’ers between the ages of 5 and 18 exhibited their 4-H project chickens for judges. These youth, and their families travelled from 9 different counties for a day of showing in Lexington. Livestock showmanship teaches young people a variety of fundamental learning topics ranging from responsibility to confidence.
