National 4-H Council

County Fairs involve 4-H by giving youth an opportunity to develop life skills while showcasing their 4-H projects. At county fairs, 4-H members are able to exhibit their knowledge, skills, and abilities that they have developed in their 4-H projects. This ranges from exhibiting live animals to static projects, as well as participating in contests, service projects, and much more! In order to participate in 4-H at county fairs, youth must be officially enrolled 4-H members. While enrollment is open year-round, youth interested in participating in their county fair or the Nebraska State Fair must complete enrollment by June 15.

Find a county fair near you and learn more about county 4-H events and rules by contacting your local Extension office.
