DEPARTMENT 220 – 4-H CLUB BOOTHS

Chairperson: Marcus Boston, Leon County Extension

The purpose of the 4-H Fair Booth is to promote 4-H goals and visions and to market the 4-H program.
The North Florida Fair will pay $150.00 per booth participation.

ONE 4-H Fair Booth, from each of the participating counties served by the North Florida Fair, may be selected by that county’s Extension 4-H Agent or representative to be displayed. District Councils I, II, and III are also eligible for booth space.  Booths may be completed by individual 4-H Clubs or represent the county 4-H program.  Booth request must be made directly to your county 4-H office to be selected.  A description of the booth should be submitted to the county 4-H Agent or representative.  All Booth requests must be submitted by the county 4-H Agent or representative to the 4-H Club Booth Chairperson, in writing, by Friday, September 23, 2016

Counties requesting more than one booth will be put on a waiting list.  They will be selected for an additional booth by lottery selection after October 3rd.  Counties that forfeit their booth after October 10th will not be eligible to participate the following year.
