Chiawana High sophomore Colby Hanses shares facts and answers questions about the chickens he raises with a group of Edison Elementary School students during Tuesday’s 23rd annual Farm Fair for fifth-graders at the Benton County Fairgrounds in Kennewick.
More than 1,300 students from 14 Mid-Columbia schools are expected to attend the event spread over two days, said Ramona Rommereim of the Franklin County Farm Bureau.
The students rotate through exhibits to learn about local agricultural businesses, organizations, agricultural careers, products and commodities.
Hanses, who is nicknamed “Chicken Boy,” said it was his sixth year as a presenter at the event.
