Ohio State Fair Orientation – Sunday, July 21

4-H members who are selected to represent Washington County at the Ohio State Fair, should plan to attend the State Fair Orientation on July 21, 2019, 1:30pm at the Extension Office. This is a time for members, parents, and advisors to become familiar with State Fair judging, directions to judging venues, plus ideas on how to take projects to a new level for State Fair interviews and judging will be shared.  Photos for the media will also be taken.

4-H members selected as State Fair representatives at County 4-H Project Judging will receive notification of their project judging day and time at the State Fair. If you are selected as a State Fair representative, it is very important for you to let the office know as soon as possible if you are able to participate. If you are able to participate, we need time to get you the details,    tickets and maps you will need for your State Fair trip. If you are unable to participate we will need time to contact alternates. The Ohio State Fair can be an awesome experience for the whole family!

Going to the Ohio State Fair as a county representative can be a wonderful opportunity. It is a time to meet others from around the state, learn more about your project interest, and gain useful interviewing skills. Many 4-H’ers feel they are not ready or too nervous to take this opportunity but it can be a fun adventure filled learning experience. We hope the State Fair Orientation and encouragement from parents and advisors will give those members selected for Sate Fair the tools they need to take the adventure!
