NEW AT WINTER FAIR
For the first time at Winter Fair 4-H’ers will be able to be judged using the Danish System. They then are eligible to bring that project to fair without it being judged at the Schaghticoke Fair and receive a fair ribbon and premium (non-cloverbud). This will apply to only non-perishable projects that fit in a class listed in the 4-H Schaghticoke Fair Book. If a member would like to improve their project and then have it judged again at the County Fair they may. All judged Winter Fair projects that are entered in Schaghticoke Fair (brought to the Fairgrounds to display in the 4-H building) would then receive the appropriate ribbon and premium to go with the ribbon designated at Winter Fair.
