4-H Project Resources

Since there are a number of organizations who work together to make the Grays Harbor County Fair come to life in our community, there are multiple places to search for information and deadlines.  While some of these dates are established by partner organizations in the community, they should be posted and shared as soon as possible through the course of the year in the News Blast and on the 4-H Calendar, which is available at http://extension.wsu.edu/graysharbor/4-h/calendar/

Meeting the April 1st 4-H Fair Eligibility deadline is the way for youth to become eligible to exhibit 4-H Projects at the GH 4-H County Fair.  When those exhibits are related to animal projects, some of the other deadlines to consider are:
March and June – GH 4-H Horse Council Mandatory Meetings for Horse Project Exhibitors
April – Grays Harbor Youth Livestock Auction (GHYLA) Registration Deadline
May – Grays Harbor Youth Livestock Auction (GHYLA) Quality Assurance Meeting
July – Grays Harbor County Fair Animal Entry Deadlines
July and August – Grays Harbor County Fair Still Life Entry Deadlines (photos, posters, creative art projects, etc.)

There are also 4-H animal management and care deadlines, established by the WA State 4-H Program, which vary by animal species, and are outlined in Section 9 of the State 4-H Policy & Procedures Handbook at http://extension.wsu.edu/4h/.
