Entry fees for 4-H members at the 2018 South Dakota State Fair have been sponsored for this year’s State Fair. The 93rd South Dakota Legislative Session provided $50,000 in allocated money to SDSU Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program for the sole purpose of eliminating or reducing fees for 4-H exhibitors at the 2018 South Dakota State Fair.
For the 2018 SD State Fair, there will be an August 20th registration deadline for all entries (livestock, Youth-in-Action,and static).
All families must register their 4-H members in Fair Entry for up to 10 livestock entries and any Youth-in-Action events they want to participate in by August 20th regardless of ribbon placing.
Static exhibits must be entered by August 20th. Each 4-H member may bring up to 10 static exhibits.
Animals may not be substituted after August 20th. The animals entered must be the ones exhibited.
