Hay bales transformed into animals, farming equipment, and creatures as competitors used their imaginations to create works of art at the Lorain County Fair. Twelve entries including individual and group projects were considered by six judges. Wellington Enterprise reporter Kelsey Leyva served as one of the judges. At the end of the judging, Elyria Precious Pups & Projects 4-H Club came out on top with its “Rover Coaster.” Kerri Wacker took second place, Farm Credit Mid-America took third, and Rural Rebels 4-H Club also took third.
