Western Idaho Fair: Idaho kids get a chance to show off their animals in 4-H competitions

Amidst the rides, food and games at the Western Idaho Fair are the 4-H and Future Farmers of America competitions that give kids with enthusiasm for agriculture a chance to show off the results of their hard work.

But, not all of the 4-H events are strictly agricultural. The 4-H Small Animal Costume Contest gave children an opportunity to demonstrate their creative flare, and animal-raising ability.

Chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits and other small animals were dressed up in costumes their caretakers designed and put together and were judged on creativity.
