Due to restrictions currently in place by COVID-19, it was necessary to make changes to this year’s 4-H exhibition at the Washington County Fair. The following changes have been discussed and approved by the Washington County 4-H Council (6-15-2020) and the Washington County Fair Board (6-16-2020). Details and protocol for the Directive Health Measures that will be followed by 4-H will be guided and provided by the Three Rivers Public Health Department at a later date. (JUNE 18, 2020)

Dear Washington County 4-H Families,

With the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s 4-H program will undoubtedly look and feel differently than our past “normal” years. Regardless of how we handle summer workshops, county contests and county fair exhibition, we will do our best to provide positive youth development experiences to our 4-H families. As things change and are announced, the 4-H staff will continue to do our best to keep you informed.
