4-H Members, it is time to celebrate what you have achieved in your 4-H project work this year!

View Lake County 4-H JUDGING RESULTS here! As judging continues, more will be added. State showcase results are available on the Indiana 4-H website.  To view an exhibitor's entry details, hover your mouse over that line and click.  Exhibitors, please see the Viewing Approved Entries-Results handout below to see how you can log into FairEntry and view your ribbons and judging comments.  You can also edit your settings for "Enable Public Viewing".

Here are some other resources that you may find useful:

Record Sheets

Dog Project Page

Horse & Pony page  Patterns are ready!

State Fair: You can find information about the Indiana State Fair 4-H Livestock Competition & Project Showcase at https://www.indianastatefair.com/p/state-fair/2020-fair-update

Arts & Crafts: Arts and Crafts exhibitors will have the option of uploading 1-2 additional photos if you wish.  This is a chance for you to show the judge a close up or a view from another angle.  Please note that if the exhibit qualifies for state, only the first photo will be submitted.  Make sure that the first photo shows the entire item. Ceramics: Please include photos of the bottom of the item and (if applicable) the inside of the item. Fine Arts: Exhibit does not need to be framed.

Garden:  Our State Fair Garden judging is a non-qualifying event.  That means that any member may enter exhibits. You don’t need to qualify at the county level first.  (Exception:  Each county may send only one Garden Educational Exhibit.)  We encourage you to consider entering BOTH county and state Garden exhibits this year.  Please note that State Garden has slightly different exhibit classes (more info here) and requires a separate entry in the State Garden Department in FairEntry.  State entries are due July 29.  County exhibits must be entered in the County Projects Department and are due July 15.
