New London County 4-H Fair/Expo
July 22-24, 2016
North Stonington Fairgrounds
Wyassup Road, N. Stonington, CT
The NLC 4-H Fair/Expo is open to the public.
All 4-H'ers in New London County are welcome at the Fair! It doesn't matter if you are in a community-based club, an afterschool program, or a science program. In addition to the animal shows throughout the weekend, 4-H'ers can enter posters, art, flowers and vegetables, baked goods, photography- check out all the stuff you can enter in the Fairbook below. Click here for the Exhibit Hall Entry Form.
Did you know you can enter your pet in the Fair too? Even if your pet is a lizard or goldfish or cat! And the Pet Show is 'open,' which means you can have a friend enter the show with you, even if they aren't in 4-H. Click here for the entry form.
The Robotics Challenge, Sunday at 1:00, is open to all 4-H'ers. Get the flyer and entry form here. Following the Robotics Challenge, there is a 4-H We-do Challenge Build anyone can enter! For just the entry form, click here.
It is MANDATORY for 4-H’ers exhibiting in the Fair to have their record book with them at the time of check-in.
The 4-H’er needs to have a 4-H Activity Record (either the regular or Alternative records are fine) filled out to the month of June, and at least one 4-H Project Record in a registered project area. It is not necessary for the 4-H’er to have a project record for each animal/item entered in the Fair.
The Activity Record should show (at minimum) goals, rudimentary activities up to June, My 4-H Story, and signatures. The Project Record should have the goals, activities, and project description/ identification pages filled in.
The Record book presented by the 4-H’er for check-in will not be judged. The Record book can be filled out via computer, pen, pencil, or crayon, although legible is preferred! It would be great for all the 4-H’ers to enter their Record book for judging, but it is not necessary.
Please be aware that in order for a 4-H’er to show in Horse or Dairy at the Big E, it must be their project and appropriate project records kept.
Record keeping is a large part of the 4-H program, and the skills the youth learn will serve them well in adulthood.
