OSAGE | Mitchell County businesses, organizations and individuals are encouraged to participate in the 2018 Ribbon Auction at the Mitchell County Fair. It will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 5, starting in the Beef Arena and then moving to the Swine Arena.
The Ribbon Auction is an opportunity to reward and encourage FFA & 4-H members in their livestock projects. Members will be selling one ribbon in the Ribbon Auction. Eligible species include beef, dairy, sheep and swine. Buyers will receive a certificate, duplicate ribbon and photograph of the member and project.
“Last year’s ribbon auction commission funds purchased year-round insurance for all 4-H members and events, helped send members to camp, state conference, fun days and fun nights," said Olivia Logue, Mitchell County 4-H & Youth Coordinator. "Commission funds also went to FFA Chapters and paid ribbon auction expenses.”
