4-H Youth Fair
This event is held in May and is an excellent opportunity for members to gain experience and instruction in their animal project area before County Fair. Many, who are new to a project area, never compete with their project until the day at Fair.
Many times this is not the best experience for the youth or parents. Youth Fair on the other hand is a place where a "safe and educational" environment is created and members learn and grow. They have opportunity to show their animals. This allows the member to practice what they have just learned.
What does all this mean to the 4-H'er? It means that they should attend, come with a spirit to learn new information, a desire to make their project better for County Fair, to have fun and to meet other 4-H'ers from Columbia County. Details on classes, show schedules, class fees and the registration form will be found in the Columbia Columns 4-H newsletter.
