Update on our skillathon process for 2021. Now that our in-person limit has been raised to 300 people we will NOT need to pre-register for skillathon.
Skillathon will be held on Wednesday, May 26 and Thursday, May 27 at the Adams County Fairgrounds from 2 – 7 p.m. We will be set up in the Administration Building and only members will be allowed to enter the building. Masks and social distancing are required.
All 4-H members must participate in the applicable Skillathon(s) to show at the fair and earn points for the Outstanding Exhibitor scoring. Skillathons are required for 4-H and optional for FFA. Exceptions: Participation in the Skillathon is optional for youth enrolled in horseless horse, pet goat, and pet rabbit projects.
Your livestock resource book and record book are an excellent place to begin studying for skillathon. Looking for some additional study tools? Check out our friends at Wayne County’s practice skillathons at https://wayne.osu.edu/skillathon-study-materials.
Makeup skillathon will be scheduled on an individual basis. If you cannot attend the scheduled dates on May 26 or 27, please contact the office or myself. Anyone not completing the skillathon on May 26 or 27 will not be eligible for related awards. The makeup skillathon will however meet the requirement to show at the 2021 Adams County Junior Fair.
