Adair County youth ages 9-18 are encouraged to enter their 4-H projects in the Adair County Fair.  Age is based on the youth's age as of January 1 of the calendar year of the Fair.  Cloverbud youth (ages 5-8) may display their exhibits also during the County Fair.  For non-animal based projects, the Adair County Fair is the qualifying event for a youth to advance to the Kentucky State Fair.

County and State Fair Exhibit Rules 

These rules are updated annually and will be followed in determining class champions that will advance to the State Fair.  It is the youth's responsibility to prepare the exhibits according to the guidelines.  Many of the categories refer to 4-H publications that can be ordered from the National 4-H Mall.  The County Extension Office may have copies that you can review prior to purchasing your copy.  Contact the Extension Office for specific category questions.
