- What's the Difference Between 4-H Projects and Exhibits? - A project is centered around a topic of interest to members. Members can choose one or more topics to learn about. There is a whole range of projects for 4-H members, everything from animals, to gardening, to safety, to food & nutrition and more! A project should include a series of learning experiences related to that topic. When you enroll in 4-H online, you sign up for projects. Below is a list of the Knox County 4-H projects available. An exhibit is the specific item or animal that the 4-Her brings to the fair. All eligible exhibits are found in the Knox County Fairbook. There is a separate exhibit registration process for county fair that will happen later on. Important dates to remember:
June 15 - Deadline to enroll for projects in 4H Online.
June 15 - Deadline to ID animals
August 2 - Deadline for Fair Pre-Entry Forms for Exhibits
A 4-Her must be enrolled in the project in order to exhibit at the County Fair.
