Please review current In-Person & Virtual Ohio Youth Skillathon Information.
Open to any Ohio youth, age 8 and in the 3rd grade, or 9 years old and older regardless of grade level, to age 18, this is a separate virtual event to allow broader participation in 2023. You do not have to exhibit a particular species to participate in that species Skillathon. Virtual Skillathon participation does not qualify a youth participant for outstanding market exhibitor awards. Proctored Virtual Skillathon at the Ohio Expo Center will qualify for the Outstanding Breeding Exhibitor awards.
Participation in the In-Person & Virtual Ohio Youth Skillathons will be meet the Fairfield County Junior Fair Skillathon requirement. Please note that if a member chooses either of these options, project record books will need to be completed and turned into the OSU Extension Office by Friday, September 22nd so that they can be reviewed. If participating in the Ohio State Fair VIRTUAL Skillathon, members must have completed this by midnight, September 1st.
Individuals completing the virtual OSF Skillathons will receive their score/certificate at the completion of their Skillathon. Please screenshot/print this certificate for your records.
