Celebration of Champions

THE EVENT

The 2019 CELEBRATION OF CHAMPIONS will recognize 4-H youth competing at the Great Indiana State Fair through a transformative gala with monetary awards that celebrate achievement, scholarship, and hard work.

Held in the Indiana Farmers Coliseum on Sunday, August 18, 2019, the Celebration of Champions is a perfect and fitting end to the annual Indiana State Fair.

What better way to close the Fair than by honoring the achievements of youth competing in 4-H livestock, agriculture and other events.
