4-H Fair Entries

All Morris County residents in grades K-13 are invited to participate and enter their art, craft or science project, knitting, photos, plants, models, sewing, food, and more in the 4-H Fair on the Farm event. Some things are open to active 4-H members from that club or project area and other divisions are open to all, or even adults associated with Morris County 4-H (alumni, leaders/volunteers, parents).

Participants in Kindergarten to 3rd grade (called "Cloverbuds" in 4-H) receive rainbow ribbons for participation. Older age groups are: 4-8 grade, 9-13 grade, and adults; their entries get judged against a standard and also receive ribbons (Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair / Participation) as well as rosettes for Best-in-Show and Honorable Mention. 

All will be on display at the Fair from July 26-28 (some will be highlighted on the website). Animal shows and Quiz Bowls will be held at the Fair; check the schedule for details.

The 2024 Entry Book is available here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1brUnc0BQhpCD5Zn8TK74QGAsYTc2PIHb/view?usp=drive_link and includes all forms. See below for links to the forms separately. The deadline for most entry forms is June 30.

Note: If you have an item you would like to enter for "display only" and don't need it judged, please write that on the form or let us know when you send the entry form in. This applies mainly to adults entering their projects in the Fair.

If you are unsure about some details of your entry (e.g., size of your matted photo, name of your craft project, or what vegetable or flowers you will harvest on the day of entry drop off) simply note your best guess and update the information later.
