When Sophia Barlow  first entered the 4-H and Allen County Fair universe two years ago, she was certain of one thing: she didn’t know how much she didn’t know about either.

Fast forward to this weekend and now the 15-year-old Logan Pals 4-H member is much more well versed on all things Fair-related.
