SARATOGA CO., N.Y. — Any 4-H member will tell you just how much they look forward to their county fair. The food, the friends, and above all, the chance to exhibit their project work is a summer highlight to many 4-H youth. Though a lot of hard has went into planning the 2021 Saratoga County fair, youth with static exhibits such as photography, horticulture and STEM projects are not able to exhibit to their projects in a traditional format due to problems caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In an effort to give these 4-H youth an opportunity to demonstrate their impressive project work, Saratoga County 4-H is planning the “4-H Project Exhibition”. Experienced judges will evaluate entries earlier in the week and award ribbons for project work. Public viewing of the exhibits will take place on August 14th & 15th from 10am-3pm at the 4-H Training Center in Ballston Spa, NY.
Saratoga County 4-H Youth Development is open to all youth in Saratoga County ages 5-18. Saratoga County 4-H offers a diverse range of programming opportunities that allow youth to “learn by doing”. If you would like more information about Saratoga County 4-H you can visit their website at ccesaratoga.org/4-H, or call the CCE Saratoga office at 518.885.8995.
