Welcome to the Fair Entry page for Allen County 4-H. Please see the attached instructions for entering projects online on our new Fair Entry system. Each project MUST be entered into this system to be eligible to exhibit at the Allen County Fair as well as the Indiana State Fair. Traditional 4-H members must enter their non-livestock as well as livestock exhibits. Mini 4-H members must enter their non-livestock exhibits, but not their livestock exhibits. You have until June 30th to enter your specific projects. In addition to the paper instructions, the State 4-H Office has released the following You Tube video to help with entering your projects: http://bit.ly/1IDjtx3.
Thank you for your flexibility and adaptation to all of the change we have introduced this year. The new statewide online system will be an improvement over our previous system and will also help teach life skills associated with adaptation to new technology that our youth will need to become comfortable with as they finish their years of school and start in the competitive workforce. People working in every field must adjust to changing technology or risk falling behind. As technology evolves at an alarming rate, part of our job is to help our youth remain comfortable with those changes and encourage them to continue learning new and innovative ways of doing things that looked very different in the past.
As always, please contact me at 260.481.6826 with any questions.
