Ohio State Fair Delegates and Alternates

Congratulations to all of our 4-H members who participated in pre-fair judging yesterday and today.  Thank you to our wonderful volunteers and JFB members.

Here is the link for the delegates and alternates.  

Please note. State fair packets must be picked up by July 18. If you need you project for judging at the state fair on Wednesday, July 24, you can pick it up anytime. If you are going on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, July 25-28, then projects can be picked up on Wednesday, July 24.


For primary informational reference, please refer to the Ohio 4-H State Fair Guidebook, which is available, on-line at the following website address: http://www.ohio4h.org/families/ohio-state-fair/state-fair-4-h-non-livest…. When the delegate comes in to pick up their packet they will get a copy of their day guidebook pages, Junior Fair ticket and parking passes (your family will still need to pay the set price to park).

We hope these letters will assist your 4-H member in providing them with positive encouragement and complete information to guide them through their State Fair experience.

2019 Ohio State Fair DNA Samples

The Ohio State Fair requires all market beef entered in the 2019 Ohio State Fair to have individual DNA samples taken from each animal that may potentially be entered. These DNA samples must be in the possession of the Ohio State Fair by January 15.  Youth need to contact OSF directly to request the sample collection kit.

Attached is a document containing sample collection instructions. Please read the attached instructions that will be a part of each sample collection kit, and contact Stacey French, Agricultural Department at the Ohio State Fair, if you have any questions. Stacey’s phone number is 614.644.4049 and email is S.French@expo.ohio.gov.

Also note that youth showing at any of the BEST sanctioned shows must have EID tags in their calves prior to the first show in which they exhibit. BEST shows prior to the January 15 deadline to submit samples to OSF include: Heart of It All, November 24-25, Lima; AGR Holiday Classic, December 8-9, Columbus; and Scarlet & Gray Midwest Showdown, January 5-6, Springfield.

Successful Year for Greene County Youth at OSF!

What a great year for Greene County 4-H youth at the Ohio State Fair for non-livestock projects.  More than 75 youth were nominated by judges to represent Greene County 4-H in some tough competition with youth from around the state in many project areas.  The individuals listed below received top honors of “Outstanding of the Day.”  This honor is awarded to youth who place in the top 20% of their class.  The clock trophy is awarded to the top in the class.

Congratulations to all of our state fair delegates and way to represent Greene County!

Public speaking is such an important skill and this is a great way to practice and gain additional experience.  Youth will also be selected to represent Greene County at the Ohio State Fair.

There are categories for individuals, teams, and for Cloverbuds for reciting the 4-H pledge.

Greene County will follow these rules and specifics that are the same for the Ohio State Fair.  Please click here.
