Clermont County Junior Fair will only be tagging feeder beef, breeding heifers and hogs this year for the fair. The exhibitors are asked to tag their own projects before coming to the fair. We will be using leftover old tags that say CCJFB not the electronic tags. If your animal already has an EID tag, you will not need to re-tag. We will use that number. We are asking Club Advisors to pick up tags for their clubs on Saturday at the fairgrounds from 9:00am to 11:00am. If you need help tagging please contact Kim (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Penny (email@example.com).
Accommodations can be made for youth with disabilities through our Winning 4-H Plan. This form must be completed by the member’s parent/guardian and submitted to their county 4-H professional. A 4-H professional will contact the parent/guardian to arrange a meeting to discuss the request in more detail. To make an accommodation request, complete the Winnng 4-H Plan Request Form (link below). Email your plans to Kelly Royalty at firstname.lastname@example.org. ALL plans must be received by 4:00pm Friday, July 10.

Dandelion Detectives is a STEM activity targeting 3-7 graders where participants work together to measure the value of weeds for insects. Dandelion Detectives will take place over the summer of 2020 and participants can be located in Ohio or surrounding midwestern states.
The Dandelion Detectives project can be completed in one day of your choice (June-August) and involves: taking a pre and post questionnaire about insects; observing insects at an “Observation Dandelion” created using simple provided materials and sugar water mixture; and conducting a lawn weed survey. Participating Dandelion Detectives will be able to upload their findings to a project website. At the end of the project, students will receive a “Student Scientist” certificate and will have access to all of the data collected by the project team!
Toolkits containing all materials to participate in Dandelion Detectives can be ordered for $10 (to cover shipping fees) at this link.
