Junior Fair Stall Sheet/Registration Deadline – June 15
Because the June 15 deadline falls on a Saturday, stall sheets must be submitted to the Extension office by 4:30 p.m. on Monday, June 17, with the exception of Leased Horses, Market Rabbits and Feeder Calves. NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED! Leases for Dairy and Llama projects are also due.
Volunteers received stall sheets when they completed their club book order and should disburse them to all members. Forms are also available on our website under 4-H Youth Development>Junior Fair. A volunteer from each club must collect ALL stall sheets, review them for accuracy and compare with project enrollment, sign them and submit them to the Extension Office for the club.
Each exhibitor must submit only ONE stall sheet per specie. The only exception is if an exhibitor is registering through two different clubs/chapters in the same species, then a stall sheet is required for each club. (For example, John is exhibiting a market steer through his 4-H club and a breeding heifer through FFA, then John will need a beef stall sheet for 4-H and beef stall sheet for FFA.)
Dog Registration Forms Due – June 15
