Junior Fair Entry Form now available

The  Junior Fair Entry form is now available. Please submit one form per youth per club/chapter they belong to.  (an example would be a youth taking livestock in 4-H and FFA would need to submit 2 forms).  Advisors may turn club forms into the Senior Fair Office (SFO), Monday – Friday, August 17-21 and 24-28, between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:00 pm.

Youth and their parents must complete the form using the  2019 Junior Fair Book for class numbers, and turn the form into their advisor.  The advisor is to check the form over, and then will submit all member forms for their club to the Junior Fair Office.  Don’t forget to sign the form – Member, Parent and Advisor!

Please enter all animals (including backup animals) for each member, as we know many of you aren’t sure which market animal you will be bringing to the fair yet.  The form does ask for the Fairfield County Market Tag and Sex in the last column – this is new this year.  Don’t forget to enter those!

Youth entering dogs, companion animals, crops and gardening projects, or cakes, pies and candies will also need to complete this entry form.

Dogs and Horses will need to complete their separate show entry forms as well.  Once those are finalized, we will share those with you.

When going to the Senior Fair Office, located in the brick Administration Building on the fairgrounds, advisors must enter the door marked Junior Fair.  This door is closest to Fair Avenue.  Masks are expected to be worn into the office, and Sandy will be wearing appropriate PPE to accept your paperwork.  There will be a limit of 2 advisors in the office at a time, so if you see people waiting, please wait your turn.  You are expected to stay 6 feet apart when waiting as well.

Once inside the office, turn left to Sandy’s desk and hand her your club entries.  She will review the entries and ask questions if she has any.  Once all entries are finalized, the SFO will prepare pass packets and let advisors know they are ready for pickup.

Please remember, due to COVID-19, the SFOis asking you be patient when dropping off entries.  They will be doing their best to keep the lines moving, but you may have a slight wait.  Also, once the Senior Fair Board finalizes advisor/member/parent pass information, we will share that with you as well.

2020 Fairfield County Junior Fair Project Guidelines

The 2020 Junior Fair Project guidelines are now available.  This is an overall snapshot of what should be completed in your project book,  possession dates, quality assurance and skillathon information, as well as what is expected for those projects that are to be interview judged at the fair (cakes, pies, candies, companion animals).

All dates are subject to change as adjustments are made to accommodate health and safety priorities related to COVID-19.

Please Respond: Member survey regarding 2020 4-H Projects

All 4-H members (excluding Cloverbuds) should have received an email from Stacy Hicks on Tuesday, June 16th that shares an overview of 4-H project completion. Families with multiple 4-H members should receive multiple emails personalized to each member. We are asking that all 4-H members reply to the survey so we can continue making plans for summer judging. We have decided to extend the deadline for response to this email to Sunday, June 21st.  Please refer to the email you received for a link to follow and complete the survey to help us plan for judging this year.  The survey will take less than 30 seconds to complete.  If you have any questions, please contact the office at 740-653-5419. If you did not see an email with this survey link, please let us know (and be sure to check your junk/spam folders in your email).

Thank you for your help!

Fair Updates for Companion Animal Exhibitors and Parents

Dear Companion Animal Exhibitors and Parents,

We want everyone to have a great experience with judging so here are some helpful reminders as well as information about some fun activities we will be hosting:

  • Please be sure to review the Jr Fair Rules Book for judging requirements and appropriate judging times. Registration for each class will open approximately ½ hour before judging begins.
  • Since this is an interview judging and can take several hours, please be sure to bring the appropriate items to keep your pets comfortable and safe, while they are away from home. A special note to any of our Amphibians and Reptiles exhibitors, if the weather conditions on the day of the show are not appropriate for your pet to endure, please err on the side of caution and leave your pet at home, but explain to the judge the reasons behind your decision.
  • For all exhibitors, we will once again be having a costume contest for you and your pet. We always love to see your creativity at work!!
  • We also be hosting a Stuffed Animal Show for our Cloverbud members and always enjoy meeting them and their stuffed animals!!

We are excited to see all of you on Sunday, October 6th!

The Companion Animal Committee

Companion Animal Judging Reminders

Youth competing in this non-livestock competition need to bring their project book to judging! Refer to the Junior Fair Book or Members Handbook/Project Guidelines for details. Cat and Ferret Exhibitors – All required vaccinations must be given by a licensed, accredited veterinarian and must be current through October 6th, 2019 for county judging. Rabbit Hopping, the Costume Contest and the Cloverbud Stuffed Animal Show will continue this year. There is no advance registration for these fun classes, just sign up the day of the show.
