1. Youth may enroll in project areas at any time. However, to be eligible to exhibit at the county fair with full privileges the information in the Competitive Event Table must be met.

2. For youth enrolling in 4-H for the first time and/or joining clubs or programs organized after the May 15 deadline, enrollment will be received for a period of one calendar week after the group is
organized. Because of the animal science ID deadlines, youth enrolling after May 15 will not be able to exhibit in animal science projects with full privileges.

3. 4-H member may choose to utilize their one-time exemption recognizing that they have missed a 4-H deadline and waive all consequences for that deadline. The one-time exemption applies for the
career of the 4-H member and transfers among Minnesota counties.

4. The one-time exemption form must be submitted with the late enrollment or late registration form.

5. For Animal Science ID deadline, the 4-H member has one calendar week after set deadline to turn in, to the Extension Office, the animal ID form and the one-time exemption form. (The animal must be
owned by deadline.)

6. When a 4-H member uses their exemption for a late ID, then the animal(s) being ID'ed may only be shown by that same 4-H member at a 4-H county and/or state 4-H event. The late ID'ed animal(s)
cannot be exhibited by another sibling at a 4-H event during the current 4-H year.

7. If the county determines the 4-H member is "not eligible," this consequence is removed, if the youth chooses to use the one-time exemption.
8. Grievance procedures and one-time exemptions are not allowed when possible outcome could affect another youth (e.g. State Fair trip acceptance deadline.)
9. Central County ID options: 1) Attend designated county ID with animal(s); 2) Make arrangements with someone else to ID animal(s) at designated date/place; 3) Make arrangements with 4-H Program
Staff to attend another county's central ID date (not elibile for rate of gain); 4) Use one-time exemption and identify own animal(s). (Arrangements must be made with 4-H Program Staff prior to
identifying own animals; not eligible for rate of gain.)

Exemption process originally implemented 10/1/13; updated 10/1/14, 1/27/17

Navigating Redwood County Fair

Color coded to following Static Judging Day map

First: Go To fair entry to register your projects. The link is provided above. This guide will help you determine what

project areas to sign up for. Deadlines are in place for when to register your projects.

Next: Once you get to the fair go to the registration desk. On Static Judging Night (Tuesday) it is in the front of the Exhibit

Building. If you are first coming on Thursday morning check in with your superintendent first then check in at the 4-H office
in the back of the 4-H Exhibit Building. Here you will be given your project entry cards.

What if I didn’t get all my projects done? Not a problem. Simply turn your project cards back into the registration area.
We call those dropped project cards. It is important we get those back to alert the judges not to expect you.

What else is available at the Registration Desk?
 Wristbands for our 4-H’ers are provided by a local business. Wristbands for fair entry have been provided by local
business and at the time of this printing this gift has not been secured yet. Wristbands for parents are available for
sale at $10 each.
 4-H families may purchase meal tickets for the Clover Café and Lil’Buds food stands
 T-shirts provided by Corn and Soybean Growers and their Check-Offs
 5 Gallon buckets provided by Runnings
 Boerboom is providing buckets to our animal science participants as well. Boerboom wishes to meet and greet 4-H
members and they will be available during the fair.

My Second Step?

You may choose to visit which ever project judge you wish. Remember to smile, introduce yourself and your project, and
thank the judge for their time when you have completed your time with that judge.

How Long Do I Have To Get My Projects Judged?

Our judging opens at 3:00 pm closes at 7:30 pm. If you are in line waiting to be judged at 7:30 pm you will be fine. Judges
will take their supper break from 5:00-5:30 pm.

What Do I Do With My Project When I Am Done With Judging?

Bring your project and project entry card to one of the project check-in tables. Here you will have your project
scanned and be given the ribbon you earned on this project. This year we are asking you to place your own project

for display. We will have volunteers to direct and assist you as needed.

Can I Help After I Am Done With Judging?

YES! It takes a village to get our exhibit building ready. We will take all the help we can. We also need help tearing
down the Poultry Barn so they can get ready for their shows. Help is much appreciated!

I Need Help. Who Do I Ask?

Anyone in a 4-H or Extension Shirt will help, and most adults who are volunteering with judging night will be able to help
too. Registration Desk and 4-H Office are also good places to find help. Please ask questions!


Is Food Available?

Yes, Lil’ Buds food stand will be open for business. We have a small menu and this year will have cold stone creamery
there too for judging night.

How Do Wristbands Work and Meal Tickets Work?
Wristbands: The last couple years Farmers Union Industries sponsors 4-H and provides wristbands for

all 4-H youth who are participating in the fair (projects and/or volunteering). All other needed wristbands
are $10 each. This is a discounted price for 4-H families only. Please remember to thank Farmer Union
Industries for their past support! At the time of this printing a sponsor for wristbands has not been secured.
We will keep you posted!

Meal tickets are available for purchase and kept at the Clover Café. This is helpful for

participants who remain at the fair much of the day and need to eat on the fair grounds. These
can be purchased at any point during the fair. We do not refund surplus funds.


T-Shirts can be picked up either before or after judging. The Corn and Soybean Growers and Check-Offs
supply us with the t-Shirts. Please thank them! You included a size with your County Fair Registration. If
your shirt ordered is the wrong size we may be able to exchange them toward the end of the evening.

What the Ribbon Colors Mean

 Purple. The exhibit meets all standards. The exhibitor has shown complete understanding of what, how, and why the exhibit
was done, and has a thorough knowledge of the subject. The exhibit and workmanship are extraordinary and need no

 Blue. The exhibit meets most standards. The exhibitor can explain what, how, and why the exhibit was done and has a good
knowledge of the subject. The exhibit is well organized and well done.

 Red. The exhibit meets some standards. The exhibitor can somewhat explain what, how, and why the exhibit was done and
has a fair knowledge of the subject. Some improvements may be needed on the exhibit.

 White. The exhibit meets few standards and lacks the quality of other exhibits. The exhibitor cannot adequately explain the
what, how, and why of the exhibit. Possibly they have overlooked a safety flaw. Improvement is needed in either the exhibit,
the knowledge of the subject, or both.

 Participation. A red/white/blue-striped ribbon is awarded for participation. Project areas that are awarded participation ribbons
are not considered for blue, red, or white ribbons. They may or may not be considered for a purple ribbon.

 Multi-color. This ribbon is used for our Cloverbuds during their judging process. Cloverbuds are not part of the competitive
judging process. The judges working with our Cloverbuds focus on participation in conversation, reporting on their project,
and encouragement for continuation in their project areas.

4-H Event Descriptions

Rabbit Agility Workshop: Fun event led by Kandiyohi 4-H’er Rabbit Project member. This event currently runs as an
exhibition event in Minnesota 4-H. Come see what it is all about! Good for people of all ages to attend. Considering
starting in the Rabbit Project? This free event is for you to come explore and ask questions!

Pancake Breakfast: This event happens Sunday morning of county fair. It is our only public fundraiser for Redwood
County 4-H Endowment Fund at this time.

Fashion Show and Court of Honor: Youth participating in the Fashion Revue project members are judged on Monday
morning of Redwood County Fair. This group of people will be ranked by the clothing judges and placed in a Court of
Honor. The award is given during the Redwood County 4-H Fashion Show. The Fashion Show is a popular event on
Sunday afternoon in the 4-H Exhibit Building Stage Area. All clothing project members are welcome to participate.
Participation is awarded with a $2 premium. Never been in a fashion show? Great! Let this year be your first!!

4-H Volleyball: New tradition started 2018 by Golden Gophers 4-H Club. Youth will gather to play volleyball Sunday
afternoon for fun and to close out our County Fair in style. All are welcome to participate in this pick up Volleyball game. 4-
H Federation provides bottled water for this event.

Static/General Projects Award Ceremony: Why Static/General? Our new fair entry program introduced the work static in
lieu of the term general. So, to make sure we are all on the same page we use Static/General. The awards ceremony
recognizes 4-H youth and their accomplishments during the county fair season.


4-H Selfie Scavenger Hunt Contest: Sponsored by Redwood County 4-H Junior Ambassadors the 4-H Selfie Scavenger
Hunt will have fun prizes and will be handed out during the awards ceremony.
4-H Graduation Recognition: Each year we like to recognize our 4-H graduates with a small token of good luck with their
next steps outside of 4-H. 4-H graduates are those people who have completed high school or completed their first year of
post highschool 4-H participation often referred to as their “13th” year of 4-H. Did you know our 4-H youth are welcome and
encouraged to remain in our 4-H program one year past high school?
State Fair Orientation: This meeting is required for all attending the Minnesota State Fair. Attendee’s, Chaperones, and
parents/guardians will get their state fair entry passes and meal tickets, review expectations, new programs or guidelines,
and discuss transportation. We will also review your state fair packets as needed to ensure all information is correct. This
is an important meeting please plan to attend. Anticipate 30 minute meeting.

State Fair Chaperones: Please consider becoming a chaperone! We have training available for you and there are

lots of 4-H staff who are available to help once at the state fair too. We are required to provide chaperones for youth
attending the Minnesota State Fair. Redwood County 4-H Federation pays for transportation, lodging on the state
fairgrounds, and meals in the 4-H building. We are required to provide 1 adult for each 10 youth attending. If we do not
have chaperones by Sunday of Redwood County Fair that means the Redwood County 4-H Federation will not be able to
sponsor transportation to the Minnesota State Fair. Youth/parents/guardians will have to find their way to and from their
judging events on their own.

OPTION 4 - Selecting a specific animal, and then entering that animal into one or more Classes.
● The first step in this option is to select the animal to be entered. (Only one animal at a time can be
entered with this option.)

In the process of registering entries,
some entries will have additional
questions you must answer. Follow the


on-screen instructions to complete the questions and proceed with registration.

In some cases you may run into errors or situations
where you cannot proceed. If you see a “blue” button
or information, follow the instructions to complete the
tasks indicated.

There may be situations where you cannot proceed
with your fair entries for some reason or another. For example, you may need to enter an animal that is not
showing up as being available for entry, or you may be unsure about the correct Class to enter. In these cases,
contact your County Extension Staff - contact information can be found at

After successfully completing an entry, you can:

● Click “Add another Entry” to continue adding entries.
● Click “Register another Exhibitor” to change to

another 4-H member in the family.
● Click “Continue to Payment”. (There are no fees or

payments needed, but this step is required to complete
your registration).

Do not proceed to Payment and the Submit the Invoice
(containing all the entries) until all entries and family
members have been registered.

Click “Continue to Payment” to finish, following the steps as prompted to submit the “invoice”.
● Once an invoice has been submitted, Extension staff will review and approve your family’s entries.

Until then you are not able to create additional entries.
● You can log back in at any time to review entries previously created.

When logging back in, you will find your family profile in one of three “invoice statuses”:

Invoice ● You can continue
adding or
submitted, but completing entries
not approved
on that invoice.
● Entries cannot be

changed, but they

can be deleted from

an un-submitted

Invoice ● You can add new
submitted and entries by starting a
approved new invoice.

Click on the fair “Title” to return to your family
Dashboard at any time.

● This is where you’ll be able to find completed/
approved invoices and printable lists of entries.

When working on an invoice, you can often click on any of the navigation buttons even if they are not green.
This can be helpful for going “back and forth” while working on entries.

Other Pertinent Swine Information:

strongly recommend the hogs be quarantined in isolation on a separate farm for a period of at least 30 days.
-In 2019 – Market Gilts will again be shown at State Fair
-All hogs must cross the scale to be weighed and have their ID checked when you arrive for entry at the fair.
-21 Day Rule for Swine State Fair Trip: Participants winning a state fair trip in Market Swine should take animal they won
the trip with at county fair. Unless this animal meets the 21 day rule. See State Fair Premium Book for details.
-PREMISE ID’s…the National Animal Identification System program is now requiring Premise ID’s on all 4-H Swine ID
Affidavits. This ID is for where the animal is kept from May 15 until the time of the fair, not where you live. (Example. If the
animal is kept at Uncle Joe’s, then the Premise ID address is Uncle Joe’s address). This ID is good for all species of animal
you have and you do not need one for each specie. If you already have a premise ID, you do not need to get an additional
Animal ID:
-Pay attention to Animal ID requirements dates and deadlines
-Ear Notches use the Animal ID worksheet to ensure your are entering the correct notches
