4-H at Minnesota county fairs
4-H at Minnesota county fairs are not just fun annual events. Every summer, tens of thousands of 4-H youth participate in county fairs to showcase the knowledge and skills they've gained throughout the year, and to continue their learning experiences.
4-H youth spend months working on projects designed to equip them with essential life skills such as problem solving, decision making, project management, communications and public speaking. 4-Hers then share their accomplishments and educate the public about their subject at their local county fair.
4-Hers who demonstrate the highest achievements are then selected to participate in 4-H at the Minnesota State Fair!
They also lead visitors on tours of the 4-H buildings and barns, and conduct workshops and hands-on demonstrations for the public.
County fairs not only make great memories, they help 4-H youth grow into successful adults.
