Fair Entries

Registration is open!

Calling all 4-H'ers + Morris County residents!

Any Morris County resident from Kindergarten to adults can participate and enter their art, craft or science project, photos, plants, models, sewing and more in the 4-H Fair. Some things are open to active 4-H members from that project area and other divisions are open to all.

Participants in Kindergarten to 3rd grade (called "Cloverbuds" in 4-H) all 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 21-24 (some will be highlighted on the website). Animal shows and Quiz Bowls will be held at the Fair.

Take a look at the 2022 Fair Entry Book for details.
