Important Information about 2020 Story County Fair Exhibits

The Story County Extension and 4-H program is working closely with the Story County Fair Association and FFA advisors to ensure that the 2020 Story County Fair will be a safe and positive experience for all 4-H and FFA youth.

Because not all details have been set for the Livestock portion of the Story County Fair, we have decided to open Fair Entry for STATIC EXHIBITS ONLY. Livestock Entry will open on June 15th. You will be able to make Static Exhibit entries starting June 5th through JULY 1. Livestock entry will open on June 15th and close on July 1.

There will be no late entry fee for entries this year, but notice that all entries are due with a firm deadline of July 1!

FairEntry is now open for Static Exhibit classes only. Please visit: to complete your entries. Remember to log in with your 4hOnline email and password if you are exhibiting as a 4-Her!

Details about Static Exhibit judging and what that process will look like will be released early next week. Details about livestock shows and judging will be released the week of June 15th. Myself and the Story County Youth Committee are working to find a plan for Clover Kid static exhibit judging, as well. Those details will be announced alongside the Livestock Exhibit plan on the week of June 15th. 

Due to concerns with Prepared Food and COVID-19, there will be no static classes for Prepared and Preserved Food Exhibits. Consider doing a food comparison of taste, health, etc instead of a prepared food item. For other ideas for a Food and Nutrition Prepared and/or Preserved Food Exhibit, please visit the Iowa State 4-H Youth Development  website page!

Story County Extension and 4-H and the Story County Fair Association appreciates your patience, understanding, and flexibility during these unprecedented times. We are working hard to provide all youth with a safe experience that gives all a chance to experience the exhibit judging process.
