A photo contest for Sussex 4-H members

A Day in the Life of 4-H at the Fair

Thousands of people visit agricultural fairs across NJ where they see 4-H’ers and their projects–and more come to the New Jersey State Fair/Sussex County Farm and Horse Show than any other!

But what they see of 4-H is just a small part of the 4-H experience at the county fair. Can you tell more of the story through a photo?

Using a digital camera or your phone, take a picture that tells what it’s like to be a 4-H’er at the fair. For those with animals this could include fitting, caring for or showing your animals. For others it could include volunteering in the Ag Food Booth, with Farm Fun, or scooping ice cream in the 4-H Dairy Barn.

Once you’ve taken your photo, you can upload it through 4-HOnline.

Show us, a day in your life at the fair!
