The 2014 Iowa State Fair, held in Des Moines, ran from August 7 through August 17 and found many 4-H youth from Clay County competing in 4-H static exhibit, clothing and communication events. The Iowa State Fair is a great part of Iowa’s heritage and hosts an abundance of opportunities for 4-Hers and their families.
The event “Community Compassion” at the Clay County Fair is all new for 2014! The event will now be a Human Sciences fundraising opportunity with a citizenship and leadership focus. This is a voluntary club event where each 4-Her can donate one static (Human Sciences) exhibit to the Community Compassion event. All exhibits will be bid on silent-auction style in the club booths during the Clay County Fair. Each youth may choose the opening bid amount for their item.
