2024 Ohio State Fair 4-H Project Judging 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!

Hartford Fair Entry Reminders

Please review the following information to ensure you have your fair entries complete and are ready for the Hartford Fair!

  • Late entries are still being accepted (with a late fee) until midnight on Friday, July 19, 2024. You can make late entries by logging into FairEntry and starting a new invoice/registration and proceeding through the same process as before.
  • ALL exhibitors planning to participate in showmanship classes MUST make entries for the showmanship classes in which they plan to participate.
  • Please review your entries to ensure they are correct. Since you can log in at any point to view your entries, please remember that verification letters are no longer mailed out to exhibitors. It is your responsibility to check your entries to ensure they are complete and accurate.
  • Please check your mailing address to ensure it is correct. Exhibitors who are enrolled in 4-H had their information synced over from 4-HOnline in April so their address is the same as that in 4-HOnline. If your address is incorrect or you have changed address, please reach out to Adrienne at anderson.1410@osu.edu to get it updated. Please note: Once the 4-HOnline profiles were synced over into FairEntry, if you update your address in 4-HOnline, the system does NOT automatically update it in FairEntry; we need to manually update it in the system. We want to ensure that all profiles are up-to-date to ensure exhibitors receive their sale checks.

Help Needed in the 4-H Center at the Hartford Fair

Help is needed in the 4-H Center at the Hartford Fair during fair 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.
