Young student artists, Ag science students, 4-H members and others from across the county have been in preparation for this week since long before the school year began and have gathered at the Ellis County Youth Expo Center in Waxahachie this week to have their projects – including creative arts, woodworking, photography, food, sewing, shop and farm equipment, livestock and more – judged to determine how their efforts rank among those in their same division.

Thursdays events include the Heifer judging – Sr.Jr. Showman classes beginning at 2 p.m. and the Peewee Heifer/Steer Showmanship and Steer show beginning at 5 p.m. Wood shop and barbecue pit judging will also begin at 5 p.m.
Metal Shop judging will begin first thing Friday morning as will the judging of all creative arts. The hog judging will begin at 2 p.m. with broilers being judged beginning at 6 p.m.
