The judges for the Sanders County Fair were in full swing Tuesday morning, Aug. 28 as they began to judge all entries for this year’s fair.

Though the judges said entries were down in numbers overall this year, the quality of creations that were submitted for the Arts, Crafts, Photography, Sewing and Needlecraft were outstanding.

“We really do get some great entries here at Sanders County, I only wish we had more to look at,” said one judge.

“It doesn’t matter if you are a professional or just starting out, we love looking at what people create and always aim to give positive, constructive feedback so they can get better each year,” echoed another judge.

As always, the judges for all open categories have a judging list they work through to be able to crown a winner for each category. From technique and style even color combinations in the sewing and needlework categories hold some weight.

“This is really a fun day that we get to come down and look at what people have been working on the past year. There is one entry that had taken two years to complete this year,” said one judge.

Overall, judges for the open classes this year seemed to be overwhelming impressed with what Sanders and neighboring counties’ entrants were able to create.

From stunning photographs, to quilts, to magnificent art work — the pavilion was full of fair-goers throughout the four days, marveling at some of this year’s best entries.
