Project Goals

Do you have your projects picked out for what you will be doing this 2018-2019 4-H year? Great! Now what?? You need to set some goals for your project. Is there something you want to accomplish with this project? Are you wanting to do a KAP with this project? These are just a couple of questions you need to be asking yourself for your project. Below is a link you can use for help with setting a project goal and what is needed for a KAP. They will also be avaliable to the right for future use.

June 25, 2019  State Fair Book Correction for Food Preservation

July 3,2019  Nomination Corrections Due July 15

Incomplete Nominations

If you have an incomplete nomination, highlighted in red on the report, please submit your corrections as soon as possible. The deadline to correct state livestock nominations is July 15. Animals that remain incomplete after that date will be ineligible for both state shows. If you have an incomplete, you also received a letter in the mail outlining the process to rectify your nomination, as well as an email (from adhayes@ksu.edu). Additionally, we encourage you to verify the animals listed on the report/on your personal family letter are accurate.


State Show Entry Information:

Finally, please remember that nomination DOES NOT constitute entry. It only makes your market animals and commercial females eligible to be shown. You must enter each individual exhibitor in the show in which they would like to participate. It is up to your family whether you participate in the Kansas State Fair Grand Drive, KJLS, or both. If you do not enter and pay the fees directly to the show, the child will not be permitted to exhibit. Both shows require online entries. Entry information is provided below. If you have any entry questions, please contact the show directly. Each of them manage their own rules, entries, and entry systems, so they will be able to answer your questions more effectively. You will need to have your family KSU Nomination # and YQCA certification number for each exhibitor handy upon entering the ShoWorks system.
