4-H Program Prepares For Chautauqua County Fair

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua members have a variety of projects ready to display in the 4-H building. The 4-H building is a showcase of the projects created by talented 4-H members; these items are on display the entire week of the Chautauqua County Fair. 4-H Clubs will set up elaborate displays to be evaluated by volunteer judges. Displays as well as interactive activities are sure to intrigue fair goers and educate about local programs and agriculture.

The 4-H building gives fair goers chances to participate in a number of youth and adult activities, including crafts and educational interactive games. 4-H Youth Teen leaders help to engage fairgoers in 4-H activities such as creating crafts from recycled materials. 4-H members will also be giving presentations in the 4-H building Monday through Thursday, July 22-25, on a variety of topics.

4-H Clothing and Textiles project members will showoff their latest creations in the 4-H Youth Fashion Revue and Mannequin Modeling in the 4-H Exhibits Building at the Fair on Tuesday and Wednesday.
