On Monday – October 19th – the NC State Fair is having a 4-H Youth Day. I want to announce today that if you are planning on being at the Fair on Monday for Youth Day, please encourage your 4-H’ers to wear a 4-H Shirt. Have them walk through the Educational Building and pick up a 4-H Sticker from our 4-H Crafts Section and then – at 4:30 – please gather at the stage at the Waterfall for a group 4-H Picture. The Marketing Department at the Fair wants to get a picture of all the 4-H’ers present. They will be taking a picture from on top of the Dorton Arena looking down at the waterfall and all of the 4-H’ers past and present. So anyone who has any connection to 4-H – “Meet Me at the Waterfall” at 4:30 for a picture.
Also we have completed the judging process for our county exhibits and hay bale competition at the NC State Fair. Below you will find the results of the competitions. We are still working on the Sweepstakes winners so stay tuned for those winners. Thanks to the following counties for either having an Educational Exhibit or a Haybale.
