4-H members who received special awards (trophies, gifts, and rosettes) should be sure to send thank-you notes to their donors. Without their help, we would not be able to offer these special awards.
Each year there are a few changes to the 4-H Exhibitor's Guide. Read more for a summary list of all changes made in the fairbook and pages as to where to find more detailed information concerning the change. Exhibitor's are encouraged to read all information within the project area they are exhibiting in to make sure they are aware of all rules and have all supporting information (if needed) required for the specific exhibit.
