Many members of the Hillsboro FFA displayed special interest projects during the Highland County Fair this year. These projects ranged from woodworking to growing many different types of vegetables and crops. Members submit their items to be judged and also receive money for the quality of their projects.
Members that received placings for their woodworking projects included JJ Goldick, Ethan Adkins, Ashley Chaney and Whitney Seitz.
Goldick received first for the cabinet, lawn chair, night stand, and Ohio mounting board. He also received third place for a shelf.
Adkins received first on a shelf he made and second for a dovetail box.
Chaney received second place on her nail box that she made in class.
