Pine County 4-H Expo

Pine County 4-H is offering our first ever 4-H Expo.  The Expo is open to all who are interested in joining or who are already enrolled in 4-H.  We will be offering youth and their parents an opportunity to ask questions of those who have shown and participated in various project areas.  There will be representatives from each of the project areas that are currently listed in our 4-H County Fair Premium Book.  If you have a desire to show sheep (or other livestock) in 4-H, but have never raised sheep, there will be someone present who will be able to answer all your questions.  This will also be a great time to find out how to lease animals if you do not have access to them.  Along with that, you will learn what is expected of you when you show your project at the different shows.  For example, you will learn from those in the project area about what you need to wear, how to talk to judges, and the proper positioning of animals while you are in the show ring.   Youth and adults who have experience and are leaders in projects areas or have used these projects for entries at fair will be on hand to answer your questions.   Usually when people think of 4-H, they immediately think of animal projects, however, we want to express that there is more to a 4-H experience.  This 4-H Expo will give all youth and their families a chance to find information on what  other projects are available.  Youth will learn what it takes to build, create, display and show in areas they may be interested in. Project areas include, but are not limited to, Photography, Rockets, Robotics, Science, Engineering, Fashion, Shop, Clothing and Textiles to vegetable gardening.  Each of these project areas will have examples of what has been done in the past.  

Our desire it to create awareness and a passion for opportunities to grow in all 4-H areas.
