Davis County 4-H Indoor Exhibit Showcase

"It's a Wild Ride" 

The Davis County 4-H team has developed a themed showcase to allow for the exhibiting of 4-H projects created during 2020-2021 year. Projects will be judged and ribbons will be awarded during this open house event. Premiums will not be awarded at the county level but they will still be part of the Utah State Fair . Come enjoy daily scavenger hunts with prizes, treats, and an end of showcase party!

Indoor exhibits have typically been showcased at the county fair. This year, Davis County 4-H will host an open house event at the Wetland Discovery Point building at the USU Botanical Center (767 South 50 West, Kaysville, UT). The showcase is designed for Davis County 4-H youth to display projects they have created that demonstrate what they've learned.  There are hundreds of project options as you will see in the showcase book (drawing, baking, sewing, Lego creations, original poems, animal diagrams, etc.). There is so much that our 4-Hers are learning and we would love to see them receive guidance and get recognized – we are always working to “Make the Best Better”.

Project Explanation Sheet

Many projects require a brief description to accompany the project per rules in the Fair Book. Use the project explanation sheet below to provide a brief description that tells any of the following in regards to the project: the youth’s story, meaning, perception, knowledge, experience, etc. that helps the judges score the project. The project and the description will both be used for judging based on the Class and Lot it was entered in.  An explanation sheet represents only one project.  Encourage youth to use their best handwriting or type on a computer.
