If you have youth taking livestock to the Hartford Fair and you have not yet met the Quality Assurance requirement for this year, please make sure you’ve registered for one of the eleven remaining Quality Assurance trainings. ALL QUALITY ASSURANCE TRAININGS MUST BE COMPLETED BY JULY 1ST IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE TO SHOW AT THE HARTFORD FAIR!
Please note that there is a limit to the number of families that can register for a given session. That is one reason we are requesting that families sign up as one registration instead of registering each child individually. Families are encouraged to register early to secure the session that they prefer. Additional sessions will NOT be offered, so if you wait for the last sessions to register and they fill, your only option will be to pay $12 to complete the YQCA online module. Details on the remaining sessions and how to register are listed below:
Read the following details VERY CAREFULLY prior to signing-up for a QA Training, as this registration is intended for FAMILIES, NOT INDIVIDUALS!
We realize we have many 4-H / FFA members enrolled in LIVESTOCK projects, as well as several 4-H Club / FFA Chapter advisors, who still need to complete a Livestock Quality Assurance training during 2020. REMINDER: We are asking families to sign up together, as one registration, and to attend the same session. Due to this fact, prior to completing the survey, we ask that you determine WHO will be attending the session from your family, as you will need to type their names (as well as their 4-H Club or FFA Chapter name) in to the survey… (Note: you will only be asked to list 4-H / FFA livestock project members and advisors – not parents)
There are 11 sessions left. They represent various species, and are offered at various days of the week and times. Please choose the species, date and time that works best for your family. Once you complete the survey, MARK YOUR CALENDAR, so as to not forget to attend. You will receive a confirmation email immediately after completing the survey – if you do not receive a message within an hour, please reach out to Lisa McCutcheon at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would strongly discourage using a school email address – as we have found many of them do not allow for delivery of external emails. An email will come to you approximately 24 hours in advance of your session as a reminder, and it will contain the Zoom link needed to attend. Please note: Sessions are limited to 40 registrations per session. Once a session is filled, it will no longer be listed in the reservation. Register early to have your best selection of sessions.
Please realize that the deadline by which all Hartford Junior Fair livestock project members must attend Quality Assurance training is July 1st. If you do not attend some form of Livestock Quality Assurance training, you will not be eligible to enter / exhibit Junior Fair livestock at the 2020 Hartford Fair. With that said, if the dates and times do not fit your schedule, you still have one other option: YQCA! YQCA is a national training module, and is offered at a cost of $12 per 4-H / FFA member. You can find details here. We will not schedule any make-up Zoom training sessions, therefore if you are unable to attend one of the 19 sessions being offered, your only other option is to enroll in the YQCA training and pay the accompanying fee. (Note: Advisors are not eligible to complete YQCA, only youth members)
