4-H Day Guide

REGISTRATION OPENS JANUARY 10

Register for both events online at https://bit.ly/4-HDayRegistration23.Registration will open on January 10 and is due by 11:59p.m. on listed registration deadline. If you cannot register online, call your local Post Rock District Office during business hours before the deadline, and we will complete your online registration on your behalf during a phone conversation.

Late registrations will be accepted, but they will not receive scheduling priority. Successfully meeting deadlines is an important responsibility and life skill to develop as a 4-H member; therefore, late entries will not be eligible to earn an OPS award. No late registrations will be accepted after 4:30p.m. on February 9 for the 4-H Day in Beloit. No late registrations will be accepted after 4:30p.m. on March 2 for the 4-H Day in Osborne.

4-H Day Judging Contests
Find details about the Judging Contests AND Study Resources at https://www.postrock.k-state.edu/4-h/judging-contests
4-H Day is a great opportunity to try a judging contest! Each available contest will be the same at both 4-H Day events, so you should only participate in a contest one time during 4-H Days. Participants DO NOT need to pre-register for these judging contests. Judging times will be posted when each 4-H Day schedule is released, and you can judge when you are available. For those who have not participated in a judging contest before, volunteers/staff will be available to explain the process to you before you start. Each contest will have a Junior (7-12) and Senior (13+) division based on age before January 1, 2023. Results will be combined from both 4-H Day events to declare Post Rock District winners. Cloverbuds can practice by working with an adult. 4-H members will participate individually. All cell phones and other communications devices must be turned off while participating.
Volunteer Opportunity
Youth and adults can serve as volunteers at 4-H Day! If you are interested and able to help, please call the Mankato Office at 785-378-3174.
