CLAY COUNTY 4-H
Fair, Livestock and Horse Exhibitors Eligibility and Membership Policy
Exhibiting livestock in the Clay County Fair, Cattle and Swine Shows, provides opportunities for
4-H members to increase their knowledge of livestock and the agricultural industry, gain valuable
experiences that develop their capacity to be responsible adults, and apply what they have learned
in their clubs. Participating in the Clay County Fair is a privilege reserved for 4-H members who
are in good standing with the program. The following section provides an overview of the
process, and the minimum standards that need to be met in order to be classified as a member in
good standing. The following Member in Good Standing policy is applicable to all livestock and
equine program participants as well as general 4-H membership.
Eligibility Verification Process
August 31st of each year the 4-H staff will verify each members eligibility for the year ending.
On October 2nd of each year the fair requests a list of 4-H members who are in good standing.
The Fair cross-references this list with members who have submitted applications to exhibit swine
or cattle. 4-H members must have been a verified member in good standing for 1 year to earn
eligibility to show livestock in the Clay County Fair. Individuals who are not in good standing or
have not been a verified member in good standing of 4-H for 1 year are not eligible to exhibit.
Member in Good Standing for Clay County Fair exhibitors and Clay County 4-H members
It is the members responsibility to know their standing. Data from the previous 4-H year is used
to determine if a member is in good standing. For example, the member list provided to the fair
in October 2, 2018 is based on data from the previous 4-H year (September 1, 2017 August 31,
2018). To be in good standing a member needs to:
1. Be registered and approved in 4-H online on or before October 1st of the current year;
2. Attended 70% of their clubs business meetings of the previous 4-H year;
3. Deliver one demonstration/illustrated talk/speech at either the club or county level during
the previous 4-H year; and
4. Submit at least one project/record book during the previous 4-H year.
Exceptions to above mentioned criteria are Cloverbud members who are making the transition to
junior members. In this instance, the members will be listed as members in good standing.
