4-H Projects for Marion County (Including Fair Exhibit Requirements)

June 1, 2020

Thank you for being patient with the Marion County team as we have discussed options and plans for a successful 4-H Showcase event this summer. We especially appreciate the 4-H Fair Committee, the Marion County Advisory Council, and our 4-H survey respondents for helping us weigh the pros and cons of different choices.

After much discussion and input, the team has chosen to conduct a virtual 4-H Showcase event on July 9th - 12thwith the option for 4-Hers to drop off projects if they face significant challenges with uploading photos into a virtual system.

While we are still in the planning stages, we can share a few exciting opportunities that will be part of this Showcase event!

Just like previous fairs, this year's Showcase will focus on helping our young people to learn and grow through real-life educational opportunities! We know this year may look different, but our priorities remain the same.

We will be in touch soon with additional details, but wanted to share a few clarifying points to help you visualize how this Showcase will look:

As we prepare for your 2020 4-H Showcase, we are asking all participating families with 3rd - 12th grade youth to fill out a Google Form to give us a better idea about how many and what types of projects will be submitted this year. Visit bit.ly/4hprojects2020 to complete the form by June 15th.

Finally, we invite you to attend a virtual Zoom Chat with 4-H Educators on June 11th at 6 p.m. to talk about this year's Showcase and ask questions. We will send a follow-up email with Zoom meeting info. Please mark your calendars!

The Clover Continues!

We offer an expansive and diverse range of projects to complete for 4-H! We offer select workshops for certain projects to better educate and round out youths' 4-H experience. Workshops will be listed on the Facebook events page and in the Marion County Weekly Update as they are scheduled. If you have a question about a project, please call the county office at 317-275-9305
