In an attempt to better communicate 4-H opportunities to members and volunteers, each Monday you will receive a 4-H weekly update. This will replace our monthly newsletters. Any items of interest that you would like to share through the update or on social media can be sent to Cara Kowal at email@example.com.
Volunteers will be needed both before and during the fair to make sure the fair is a great experience for our 4-H families and the public. Please sign up for times you are available to help out at the links listed.
Information on 4-H projects offered in Marion County, including exhibit requirements for fair. This page includes individual and club projects and a link to exhibit tags to use for Cloverbuds, at township fairs, and as place holders on posters.
This is a digital version of the information that was mailed out in the fair packet. There is also a video tutorial for using FairEntry.com
