York County 4-H Blast
June 21, 2019
County Fair Pre-Entry Due July 5
The pre-entry form must be completed and returned on time in order to bring your 4-H exhibits to county fair. Exhibits not listed on the Pre-Fair Entry form will NOT be accepted at check-in. This means no late entries.
4-H Foodstand Sign-Up
As usual, sign up early to get your favorite spot before they fill up. Please sign up by July 5. It is expected that at least one person from every family works at least one shift!
REMINDER: PLEASE WEAR CLOSED TOE SHOES AND A HAT OF SOME KIND.
The 4-H Foodstand is a major fundraiser for the York County 4-H Program. The money raised will go directly to York County 4-Hers through scholarships, workshops and other learning opportunities.
County Fair Shirts Are Here!
Shirts are now available for pick at the Extension Office. Additional shirts may be purchased for $5 each during fair week.
Plant Science ID Contests
In case you didn't know, there are 4-H ID contests at the State Fair (horticulture, Weed and grass, tree, and insect) where youth 10 and older can compete. Jenny has Weed books and flashcards in her office for any families who don’t have them if your youth are interested. This is the list of weeds the youth would be learning that corresponds to the book pages (1-75): https://unl.app.box.com/s/k6ghub1pgzrs1nyz8ntss1cbeh1ph4vn
If you’d like to see what a contest is like, June 27th is a free plant ID contest in Columbus at the Fairgrounds from 12:15-4 p.m. There’s no charge and carpooling could be an option. Clover kids can attend too! Our County Fair Contest day will be July 16th.
