Cleveland County had its annual Free Fair from September 8-11. Many Norman North students participated in various activities at the fair. Multiple Norman FFA and 4H students showed their livestock, while others enrolled in agriculture classes supported other FFA members. Agriculture students were informed that they would visit the fair during their AG hour to look around, see various livestock animals, and watch their classmates show their own animals. Mrs. Styles the agriscience 1 teacher wants more students to have the opportunity to show livestock through FFA. “This opportunity is great for students to be around the idea of showing livestock to see if they are serious about it”.

Breya Sargent a sophomore placed 1st place with her commercial yearling. She later won grand champion for her open class and then placed 2nd in her class for black-faced crossbred. Senior JuliAnn James placed 1st and then reserve grand champion with her white-faced crossbred. She then won 1st place for Natural class 5 and then 3rd overall. Haley Breinholt a junior got 2nd place with her Jr. market wether goats at her first show with Norman FFA. Students who went and showed their livestock had a wonderful time at the Cleveland County Free fair.
