In order to provide lots of great opportunities for our 4-H’ers and keep everything running smoothly, we greatly appreciate support from many volunteers, both youth and adult. We hope you’ll check out our list of volunteer needs and sign up for something that fits your schedule and abilities. Volunteer positions are posted online at http://z.umn.edu/4Hfairvolunteers. All volunteers will receive a complimentary foodstand ticket. Youth who sign up to help on entry day will still have plenty of time to have their own items judged.
Goals for 4-H Exhibiting
• Why did you decide to make this item for your County Fair project?• Why did you select these materials to use in making your project?• What did you find hardest to do in making your project?• What would you do differently if you could do it again?
The judge will ask members several questions and discuss with them the quality of their projects as compared to accepted standards for projects of this type. Ribbon placings are awarded, based 50% on the quality of exhibit and 50% on what members have learned and discussed with the judge.
