A video or map exhibit posted on an interactive website that gives 4-H members an opportunity to share what they've learned in their enrolled project area.
Open to any Illinois 4-H member who meets state fair age requirements (at least 10 years of age by September 1 of the current program year)
No county-level selection process is required
No limit to # of exhibits, as long as member is enrolled in related project areas (e.g. clothing, horse, robotics, etc.)
Step 1: Pick something you've learned in one of your 4-H project areas that you'd like to share with others
Step 2: Create a 3-5 minute video – do a demonstration, interview an expert, or share something you've learned about your project. Ask your county Extension office to borrow a camera! Or create a map that share information about your project area using a free tool like GoogleMaps.
Step 3: Post your video to the IL 4-H State Fair Online website by August 1, 2012
Go to the Illinois State Fair Online website to see exhibits from 2011 https://webs.extension.uiuc.edu/4hstatefaironline/
Watch for updates on the 2012 event at this same website – coming soon!!
