Communication contest To View click here

information is now in the fairbook, including the entry form.

Club leaders – please sign off on entry forms.

If needing to decide what class to enter, ask the question “What is/was your goal for this exhibit?” If it was to make a birdhouse for a specific bird (then it would likely go in the wildlife class and not the woodworking class).

A County-wide Achievement Show

The show is being planned for June 9 in Christy 4-H Hall 4-7 pm. Not every club is currently having an achievement show so this is offered as another way for youth to get feedback about their fair exhibits and help identify which class to enter in.
