4-H and FFA youth can show what they know about 9 different animal species through 10 skillathon events during the Ohio State Fair (see the schedule below). Skillathons are free, registration is the day of the event (an adult must accompany the youth), youth can come anytime between the hours listed, and youth do not have to be a state fair exhibitor or be enrolled in an animal project in order to complete. Youth vying for the Outstanding Market Exhibitor (OME) award for goat, sheep, poultry, swine, and beef must participate in the Skillathon, showmanship, and live animal show in order to qualify. Rules, study resources (including the station topics for each species), and other information are available at: go.osu.edu/osfskillathons

Dean’s Charity Steer Show

On July 30, 2019, Cathann A. Kress, Vice President for Agricultural Administration and Dean of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, along with Ohio Cattlemen’s Association and Telhio Credit Union, will host the inaugural Dean’s Charity Steer Show benefiting the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Ohio (RMHC). This event brings together our community to celebrate agriculture and support children and their families that rely on RMHC during difficult times. The show and sale will feature local celebrity exhibitors partnered with a 4-H member and their steer. All funds raised will benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central Ohio. Make a donation today at give.osu.edu/deanscharitysteershow.

Join us at the Ohio State Fair in the Voinovich Livestock & Trade Center on July 30. The event starts at 2:00, but be sure to arrive by 1:30 to get a good seat!

Awards will include best steer, showmanship, and people’s choice. During the event, there will be a “sale” following the same procedures as a typical livestock sale, but without the actual transfer of livestock. Instead, all bids and sale proceeds will be donated to the RMHC.

The mission of RMHC is to create, find, and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. Located across the street from Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, the Ronald McDonald House serves as a home-away-from-home for families while a child is hospitalized. More than 4,500 families use the facility each year with 82,000 nights of lodging provided. It is also the largest Ronald McDonald House in the world with 137 guest rooms and 120,000 square feet of kitchens, dining areas, play rooms, laundry facilities, a meditation room, exercise room, and informal gathering areas.

Can you imagine what it’s like for a family traveling for childhood medical care? Or if you had to travel for care for your child for two or nine years? RMHC helps miracles thrive. To find out more click on the previous links or visit rmhc-centralohio.org.
