    Thank you for a fantastic 2018 County Fair!


    Message from Dorothy: Be fearlessly committed to growing more true leaders

    In her last article as Minnesota 4-H state leader, Dorothy Freeman encourages all youth, volunteers and families to be fearless in growing true leaders.

    Card games, board games, and hands-on learning...Oh my!

    Make sure your club explores these new zoonotic disease and agritourism resources being sent to every county across the state. Then enter your team into a video contest for a chance at winning a Glo-Germ lesson kit for your group - The winning team will have the chance to work with a professional videographer to re-produce their video as a commercial for national distribution!

    Remember livestock demonstration opportunities

    Again in 2018 the Minnesota Livestock Breeders Association will be providing $30 cash awards to all 4-H members who complete a livestock demonstration during 4-H livestock weekend at the Minnesota State Fair. Start planning your livestock demonstration today!

    These scholarships are available for college-bound 4-H youth

    Two scholarships are being offered for Minnesota 4-H youth pursuing post-secondary studies at accredited colleges and universities. Over $58,000 is awarded annually through a competitive application process.

    State Fair Livestock Quotas for YMC 4-H

    State Fair Livestock Quotas for YMC 4-H may look a little different this summer. Due to overcrowding in the barns, and overall risk management practices, livestock quotas across the state have been reduced. There is no longer an additional trip for 90% showmanship. However, there are opportunities to win extra trips in each species for 2019! Check out this article to see our livestock quotas, and learn more about earning additional trips for next year.
