4-H Youth 


New for 2014

PLEASE READ: To have your 4-H project displayed and judged during the 2014 St. Joseph County 4-H Fair, you must be enrolled and have your state program fees paid by and no later than March 1, 2014. From March 1 through April 30, there will be an open “add a project or drop a project” phase. During this phase, any project you add WILL be eligible for display and judging. If you miss the March 1 deadline for enrolling, you may still enroll and exhibit your project in the 4-H Exhibit Hall, but your project WILL NOT be judged. Your project will receive a participation ribbon only.
