BROWN COUNTY YOUTH FAIR EXHIBITOR WORKDAYS JAN. 3-4
The Brown County Youth Fair is requiring youth participants to attend a workday to be eligible for their premium check.

The next two workdays at the Youth Fair Barns will be as follows:
• Friday, Jan. 3 – 1 p.m. (Home Economics Building)
• Saturday, Jan. 4: 8 a.m. to noon
NEED HELP CLIPPING YOUR SHOW ANIMAL?
If you are going to need help clipping your show animal for the Youth Fair, please contact the Extension Office and schedule a date and time. We will begin clipping animals Jan. 5-6. If you need to borrow clippers, blower, blocking table, etc. please contact the Extension Office. We have a limited number of these items so if you borrow them, we need them back within 24 hours. If you have any questions, please contact the Extension Office.
PUT YOUR DOLLARS TOWARDS BROWN COUNTY 4-H
Ag-Mart and Moorman’s is teaming up to give local. For every bag of ShowTec you purchase Ag-Mart and Moorman’s will give $1 back to a local 4-H Club/Project Club of your choice. Purchase between now and Dec. 31.
CONSUMER DECISION MAKING INFORMATIONAL MEETING
Consumer Decision Making educates participants on becoming smart shoppers, making sound decisions, and public speaking. If you are interested in Consumer Decision Making or finding out more information about this project, there is going to be an informational meeting on Jan. 14 at 5 p.m. at the Extension Office.
4-H ENROLLMENT IS OPEN ON 4-H CONNECT!
The enrollment process for the 2019-2020 4-H year began Aug. 15. All 4-H families, new and returning, are encouraged to log in and enroll to become an official 4-H member.
As you begin your enrollment for the year, here are some tips in using 4-H CONNECT:
• If you already have a profile DO NOT create another one!
• If you lost your email and password call the county office so we can reset, it for you.
• An active membership will not be granted until the $25 participation fee is paid on 4-H Connect!
• You cannot register or participate in an event until your profile is ACTIVE.
• When you are doing your re-enrollment for the 2019-2020 4-H Year please make sure you update your address, phone number, and e-mail address.
For any youth who is joining 4-H in 2019-2020 for the first time as a 3rd grader we ask for you NOT TO ENROLL until Sept. 1, which is the actual first day of the new 4-H year and what is used to calculate grade/age. If a 2nd grader moving into 3rd grade enrolls before Sept. 1 it will “tag” them as a Clover Kid, not charge an enrollment fee and lock them in as a Clover Kid for the year.
Don’t wait until the last minute to enroll because after Oct. 31 the cost increases to $30.
