Young community members from Gothenburg fared well at the 2020 AKSARBEN Stock Show. Competing against over 3,600 other entries compared to last years 1,900, Lexi Johnson, Helene Keiser and Heath Keiser contested skillfully. The show had more competition than usual as state fairs across the United States have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which organizers said actually contributed to the show’s success. The 93rd annual show hosted contestants from 14 different states.
