Edgar County 4H

A big thanks to EnerStar’s Chad Cornwell for judging the electricity division at the Edgar County 4-H fair. What a great group of kids and awesome projects!

EnerStar Electric Cooperative proudly supports 4-H

Did you know that our electric cooperative was founded in 1938 by the Edgar County Farm Bureau? Yep! That’s right! And we are proud of our ag roots. That is why we strongly support 4-H and the local county extension offices each year. Here are just a few fun photos from this summer’s 4-H fairs. We appreciate the hard work of all the participants, but we have a soft spot for those electricity projects.
