How to Enter

Fair Dates: July 12-16, 2023

Fair Entry Tips:

  • All 4-H, FFA, and Clover Kids entries must be made through the FairEntry website. 
  • 4-H and Clover Kids need to use the same log-in you use for 4-H Online. DO NOT create a new profile. (This is how you will access club & animal ID information)
  • Each invoice must be approved by Extension staff before another invoice can be created. Families should create entries for all members before selecting "Continue to Payment" in order to avoid being held up for invoice approval.
  • If you forget your login password, reset in 4-H Online, walk away for a little while, and come back. This will give both servers a chance to update and sync your account information.
