Skowhegan State Fair 2012
Somerset County 4-H would like to invite all 4-Her’s to participate in the 2012 Skowhegan State Fair. The Fair is open to the public from Thursday, August 9th, 2012 through Saturday, August 18th.
There are several different ways to participate. As a 4-H member you may enter any 4-H Livestock competition provided you have a signed Animal Approval form from your county educator.
4-H Exhibit Hall
4-H Exhibit Hall Set Up Dates—Monday evening, August 6th and Tuesday, August 7th
4-H Judging Date—Wednesday, August 8th.
Any Maine 4-H club can request a booth in the 4-H Exhibit Hall for either a club display or for an educational booth (or for one of each). You as a club member or independent member may enter up to 10 different projects for ribbons and premiums in the club exhibit. Each booth is eligible to compete for the People’s Choice Award and the $80.00 prize that goes with it. All educational displays receive premiums for their displays.
Last year over 7500 people toured the 4-H Exhibit Hall and had the opportunity to vote for their choice of the best exhibit. Adults and children both vote. One year the People’s Choice Award was decided by just two votes and the winner overwhelmingly captured the votes of the children. This information is designed to help you make a plan as you help design your club and educational booths.
You may also participate in the 4-H Day Parade on Sunday 12th. You can walk as a club, or make a float, parade your livestock, ride your horse, or anything else. This is a fun time and everyone enjoys taking part. There will be music; a bagpiper is playing in the parade this year. We also have great livestock demonstrations that take place after the parade in the Barn Show Ring and we encourage you and your family to come and watch.
More information is available by contacting Gail Watson at email@example.com or 474-9622. Come join us for fun and camaraderie!
