WAKE FOREST — Victoria Pender has been showing animals with her sister Kaylie at the State Fair for seven years, now.
This year, Victoria won the Grand Champion Turkey award, that came with a meaty $4,500 prize which she is putting toward college, says mom Shari.
It’s the second time Victoria has raised a grand champion — she won her first top turkey prize in 2010.
Kayli won second place with her turkey this year and also a sixth place win with her lamb.
Victoria is a senior at Raleigh Charter High.
