4-H Flash


Livestock Registration Papers due August 1st.

Families will be unable to upload livestock registration papers on their own due to 4-HOnline deadlines stating July 1st. Please email them to hand.county@sdstate.edu (the office email address) and Ann will upload them for you. Please name file with 4-Her name and animal type and registration number. Must be done before July 31st so they are put in before August 1st deadline.
Static exhibits that are judged at achievement days will be ribboned this year. You can only send 2 static exhibits to the state fair, where they WILL NOT be judged for a ribbon, unless you are a graduating senior member, then the will be ribboned. The remainder of the exhibits will be displayed and given a participation ribbon.

Projects that are completed this year, but not judged at achievement days, will be eligible to be brought to achievement days next year for judging and then sending to state fair for judging there as well.

Foods recipes that have been collected. To help us in determining the potential amount of

Some reminders for families during registration include:

  • Families with multiple youth need to register all youth before submitting the registrations. Families will not be allowed to register another youth until the registration has been approved by the county.
  • If a youth is competing in both Livestock Judging and Livestock Skill‐A‐Thon, they must register for both contests. Registering for one contest does not register you for both contests.
