The Ohio State Fair has extended the virtual skillathon registration deadline until June 18.
It is important that OSF exhibitors know that the virtual skillathon is required to compete for Overall Breeding Exhibitor at the state fair. It’s also great practice and shows a lot of what to expect for the in-person skillathon. 4-H/FFA youth do not have to be exhibiting or taking animal projects to participate.
