4-H Calendar

ALL projects:  There will be additional online entry that you will need to do by June 15.  Please note that the rules (that were written last fall) may state that a paper form will be due June 15.  That was written before we knew that the state was switching to all online ID and entry and what all that would change.

We are making every effort to update the web pages to go along with the new requirements from that state as the information is being provided to us.

Be aware that ALL 4-H members will have to sign up what projects/classes they are going to exhibit at the Blackford County fair.  This will NOT be done by a paper form.  It will be done online.  Instructions will be emailed when they are finalized with the state.  Because each county is different - these web sites will be county specific.  Again - more information will follow on this.
