Fair Resources

Fairs are an important activity for 4-H members to show mastery of their 4-H project work each year.  Below are resources to help 4-H members and their families.  The first block has helpful links for State level fair organizations.  The second tab has information and guides to help families with FairEntry.  The third tab has several scorecards that will show 4-H members and families how they will be judged at fair.  If you have questions about your county’s fair, contact your local 4-H Office or your County Fair Office.

FairEntry Resources

FairEntry is a fair management software from the same company that owns 4-H Online. Both systems integrate so members can log in using their 4-H Online credentials on both.

The first time you enter FairEntry, check to make sure your address is correct as this is the address used for sending premium checks.

Project affiliation will be required for most entries, so check to make sure your project list is correct in 4-H Online.  If a project is missing from your profile, you must contact your local 4-H office to have projects added.

It is recommended that any animals you use in fairs be entered into 4-H Online.   Animals created in FairEntry will only be accessible during the current year’s fairs.
