County fair season typically starts in June and runs through the end of August.

Nutrena, Weaver Leather, Farnam and Vitalix co-sponsored the bucket program, which is now in its second year.

Last year, Runnings donated about 7,000 buckets.

“Runnings is a proud supporter of youth organizations like 4-H,” said Runnings owner Dennis Reed in a press release. “Growth and development of our young people is vital to our future. The more that we as community partners can positively support them, the better.”

More than 6 million youth participate in 4-H across the country.
