2023 State Fair Delegates 

  • If you are a State-Fair Delegate, please let Amy know ASAP if you plan to attend, or not attend the state-fair event in Columbus. You can email Amy at Michaels.97@osu.edu to let her know. State-Fair packets will be available for pick up at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds during the Pre-Fair Judging Awards Ceremony on Monday, July 17th at 7:00 p.m.

Please Note: State Fair Judging days are divided into different categories, and sub-categories than county judging. Depending on the project category, some state-fair events allow multiple delegates, or delegates in different age categories to attend. This is why sometimes a 1st & 2nd place will both be selected to go, while other times they do not.

  • Discovering 4-H
