Every year we compile information of all of our 4-H & FFA Shelby County Junior Fair Market Exhibitors names, parents names, club, species, and member (back) numbers for a report that is sent out to all of the buyers of the sale.

We are only able to get the information that has been shared on the 4-H Online, and off of the Junior Fair Entries.

Every year we receive calls that we have left off information, misspelled names, or listed the wrong parents names, etc.

We have decided to give you the opportunity to correct it before we send it out. THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO CORRECT.

IF YOU FIND THAT YOUR INFORMATION IS MISSING, INCORRECT, OR INCOMPLETE, please email Kelly Bensman at kbenssalecomm@gmail.com and Judie Gaerke at gaerke.13@osu.edu to let us know.
