Remember both the Boone & Nance County 4-H Councils have passed a motion to help curtail county fair entry tardiness.

Late County General Fair entries of up to one week after the deadline will be accepted with a paid fee of $5.00 per work day. No late general fair entries will be accepted after one week. Individuals will need to make their appeal to their respective 4-H Council after one week.

Entries for county fair livestock (beef, sheep, swine, dairy and goat) are due closer to the respective county fair.

The above livestock entries are due in the Boone County Office by June 28. A late fee of $5.00 per project day will be assessed after the deadline. No entries accepted after June 30.
