Junior Fair Exhibitor and Advisor Fair Admission Passes

Week long admission passes have been emailed out to all Hartford Fair Junior Fair Exhibitors and Advisors. The tickets were emailed to the email address that your family uses in 4-HOnline. The email will be from the “Hartford Independent Agricultural Society Box Office” from the email address: fansupport@hometownticketing.com. The subject line of email should say “Your Receipt and Tickets for 2023 Hartford Fair – Passes and Permits”. If you do not see this email in your inbox, please first ensure that you are checking the correct email inbox. Please also check your spam/junk folder as your email server may have automatically directed the email there.

You can either save your admission pass to a mobile device, or you can print it off and carry a physical copy. The QR code on the admission pass is unique to you and is what will be scanned when you enter the gate.

If your family would like to purchase additional week passes, single day passes, or other permits (such as preferred parking), you can do so through the Hartford Fair website.

REMINDER: Teen Leadership Council (TLC) Application Due

The Ohio 4-H Teen Leadership Council (TLC) is a statewide group of 4-H teens and young 4-H alumni that provides a youth stakeholder perspective in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of Ohio 4-H programming. In this process, council members develop knowledge, skills, attitudes, and aspirations needed for future success. Council members share advice and recommendations to 4-H professionals in order to improve, strengthen, and expand the Ohio 4-H program. Members also make recommendations regarding opportunities for Ohio 4-H teen programming. They serve as a sounding board for Ohio 4-H program direction.

Individuals must be 14-18 as of January 1 of the year of application to apply for council member, committee member, committee chair, and officer positions.  Junior Advisor applicants must be 18-20 years old (as of January 1) when they apply.

Ohio State Fair Results

We have many Licking County 4-H members who will be competing with their projects at the Ohio State Fair. Results from these competitions can be found on two different websites depending on the project area. Livestock and Horse competition results will be posted on the Ohio State Fair Website. Non-Livestock competition results will be posted on the Ohio 4-H Website. Results are typically posted the day after the competition takes place. Best of luck to all of our Licking County 4-H members!

REMINDER: 4-H Center Help Needed at the Hartford Fair

Thank you to everyone who as signed up to volunteer in the 4-H Center during the Hartford Fair. We could still use additional volunteers that week. The 4-H Center is open from 10:00am to 8:00pm each day of the fair. Volunteer shifts are one hour and volunteers just need to keep an eye on the building and answer general questions from fair visitors. This is a great opportunity relax for an hour or two in the air conditioning while helping promote 4-H and support those clubs and members who are displaying their projects in the 4-H Center. 4-H members are encouraged to participate, but we do ask that an adult be present with the members while they work their shift.

To sign up for a 4-H Center shift, please visit go.osu.edu/Hartford4HCenter. If you have questions, please reach out to Adrienne Anderson at anderson.1410@osu.edu.
