Virtual Showcase Resources

This is an unprecedented year where some fairs and shows have been cancelled and others are on the verge.  Fairs, shows, exhibitions, 4-H and FFA will be looking for ways to showcase youth in Washington for their project area efforts in a non-traditional format.  Washington State University Extension and Washington 4-H have come together to gather resources and create a toolkit for a virtual show experience. The following are guidelines to offering a virtual show.  Using these tools will help guide fair boards and fair management,  youth exhibitors, volunteers, leaders, advisors, etc in a successful virtual show experience. This kit has come together with content and program area expertise and is a work in progress.  As we initiate the use of these items we will find areas that need updating, we may gain insight of more efficient ways to execute this virtual environment, or we may learn new ideas from you the end-user to upload and share.  We acknowledge that this is a starting point and are offering this up now in order to meet some requests from clientele.  We also see this as a growing and ever changing resource as we learn more about this new venue for youth recognition.  Please utilize these resources and feel free to offer direction for enhancing the deliverables, so we are able to provide a useful tool kit that meets the needs of our end-user
