Story County ISU Extension & Outreach is hosting a Barn Quilt Contest & Fundraiser!

The barn quilt competition is available to 4-H and FFA youth.  Individual members, groups, or clubs/chapters interested need to submit a plan for a 2’x2’ barn quilt by May 15th.  A small committee of youth and adults will select 12 designs for the contest.  Selected individual/groups will be provided the 2’x2’ square and will have between June 1st and July 1st to complete the barn quilt and return it to the Extension Office.  Groups will provide their own painting supplies.  Barn quilts will be displayed potentially in businesses throughout the county as well as at pre-county fair events.  Barn quilts will then be displayed in the Community Building during the county fair and auctioned off during the county fair ribbon auction.  ALL proceeds will go to improvements for the Community Building.  Plans are also developing for a couple awards (people’s choice, etc).
