In an effort to help project check in during judging run smoother than it did last year, We encourage all 4-H families to get their Fair Entry done by June 29th. This will ensure that we don't have a huge bottle neck during judging for those that haven't completed Fair Entry. FAIR ENTRY IS REQUIRED FOR ALL EXHIBIT HALL PROJECTS. No exceptions. This system allows us to create judges sheets, track which projects made it to the fair, and organize ribbon placements.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men in the United States, killing 321,000 men in 2013-that's 1 in every 4 male deaths.
