As county fair time approaches paperwork, entry forms and more will need to be submitted. Review dates for submission so opportunities to participate aren't missed. 

Remember: If questions arise, contact your Nebraska Extension - Dakota County office staff and they will assist you every step of the way.

 LATE POLICY - 4-H members are to pre-enter their projects for exhibition at the fair. Entries that are submitted past the deadline will be accessed a $10 fee per individual. Entries will be accepted up to one week past the deadline, as long as the late fee has been paid.

4-H Exhibit Hall Check-in information:  Stop at the entry table when you come in the exhibit hall.  Pick up your entry cards and attach them to your projects.  Take your exhibits to the judge, one area at a time.  Please have all projects in the project area with you as you enter.  Please interview with the judge on any or all of your projects, it is a great way to learn more about your project.  Review the flyer for more information and check in times.  Check in  flyer

The certificate of Vaccinations forms are required for the Nebraska State Fair, and must be signed by your veterinarian. The form is not mandatory for our County Fair, but feel free to use it. A Veterinary health certificate with a veterinarian's signature, or vaccination receipt is also acceptable.
