South Dakota 4-H officials appeal in cheating lawsuit

Posted: Updated:

MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - State 4-H officials are appealing a federal judge's decision to let a White Lake girl compete while allegations that she cheated in last year's South Dakota State Fair are pending in court.

Bayley Kroupa, 16, was banned from 4-H competition after a committee found she had violated 4-H ethics by allegedly showing a pig at the South Dakota State Fair that had previously been entered in another state's fair. Her father, Greg Kroupa, sued the state 4-H office on her behalf in March, arguing that the allegations of cheating are false.

Federal Judge Karen Schreier last month ordered that the girl be allowed to compete in 4-H while the lawsuit is pending.

4-H officials filed a notice they will appeal Schreier's decision.
