Important Reminders About Livestock and Still Project Interview Judgings
In addition to the record books, Judges will be evaluating the member's knowledge of their project, quality of their display / exhibit (still projects), member's overall attitude and how the member presents him / herself.
The evaluation scale used for both livestock interview judging and still project judging is listed below. It is important that youth are prepared for their interview and to understand that if they get an incomplete at the August Judging, their project will not be eligible for exhibition at the Wayne County Junior Fair.
Livestock and Still Project Interview Judging Evaluation Scale:
- Well Done
If you have any questions regarding these expectations - please contact the Extension Office.

Annual 4-H Back to School Drive
We know school just let out for most of you, but the 4-H Advisory Committee is once again sponsoring the 4-H Back to School drive to help support our communities. Wayne County 4-H clubs are encouraged to participate in this by collecting school supplies (markers, compasses, colored pencils, wide rule loose leaf paper, crayons, glue, etc.) at their summer club meetings.
School supplies can be dropped off July 27th, 31st or August 1st from 3:00 pm - 7:00pm at the Jr. Fair Office. (Same time and place as Jr. Fair entries are due) All county 4-H clubs will have their items tallied and scored based on a percentage of club enrollments. This ensures all clubs have a fair chance of winning the 4-H Back to School Drive!. The winning club will get to have a pizza or ice cream party sponsored by the 4-H Committee.
