TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- Thursday night was the final chance to take home some hardware at the Tippecanoe County Fair.

4-H members competed to be named the 2018 Supreme Showman. 

Competitors showed all types of livestock, ranging from sheep to pigs to cows, to a crowd of hundreds.

In the end, this year's winner of Supreme Showman also had the Grand Champion Steer - Claire Brown.

4-H Beef Superintendent Christian Gamble said it's been a highly educational week for these kids.

"When you don't win you're still learning things along the way. When you win you know the top prize, grand champion, supreme, whatever it really kind of, it's the super bowl of what you work for all year," Gable said.

WLFI would like to congratulate Claire Brown and all the other hard working 4-H members this year.

The livestock auction will be held tomorrow at the fair, starting at 1 p.m. The last day for the fair will be Saturday.
