Good Standing

In order to show at the Madison County Fair, exhibitors must accumulate a minimum of 6 educational "hours". Three of these hours must be 4-H club meetings while the other three can include a mix of club meetings, community service activities, and other educational opportunities. Check out this document for more information on eligibility. The Extension Office has final approval on whether 4-Hers are in "good standing" and are eligible to show at the Madison County Fair. 

4-H & Youth Committee Club Grants

The 4-H & Youth Committee is looking to give back to the clubs who donate their time to work in the 4-H Foodstand at the fair. 

If you club is looking to do some community service or an educational activity that would otherwise be outside of your price range, look no further. Check out the grant application for more information.
