|Six children from Obion County were among the field of children who participated in the annual Wool and Woolies competition at the Obion County Fair. |
Participants don their wool outfits and head to the Hunter Miller Memorial Livestock Pavilion, where they lead a sheep — either owned by themselves or borrowed from a generous producer — in front of three judges. Everyone who competes in the competition is rewarded with varying amount of prize money.
