GH 4-H Enrollment Forms Due for Fair Eligibility
April 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
All new and returning 4-H members and adult volunteers can log in to their profile and enter 4-H enrollment information directly at https://wa.4honline.com
Step by step guides to the enrollment process and hard copy forms are available online at http://ext100.wsu.edu/graysharbor/4-h/forms/
There will be a additional forms that need to be completed for youth members to exhibit their 4-H Project in the Grays County Fair. These forms, along with the current Exhibitors Book, are posted by the Grays Harbor County Fair staff on the GHC Fairgrounds website, as well as the Grays Harbor County 4-H pages.
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://ext100.wsu.edu/graysharbor/4-h/calendar/
Meeting the April 1st 4-H Enrollment 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 at http://cru.cahe.wsu.edu/CEPublications/EM0758E/EM0758E.pdf or https://pubs.wsu.edu by searching for WA State 4-H Program Policy (WSU Publication EM0758).
