State 4-H Students Look To Positive Experiences Despite Fair Cancellation

STILLWATER, Okla. – The state fair is more than an opportunity to eat a deep-fried candy bar, take a ride on a roller coaster or just sit back and watch people. The Oklahoma State Fair and county fairs statewide historically have been opportunities for Oklahoma 4-H’ers to exhibit their work from the last year and compete for a coveted blue ribbon.

However, the crowds at county fairgrounds this year will be much thinner or entirely absent. Officials with the Oklahoma State Fair announced the annual event will not be held this fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

But all is not lost for 4-H’ers who were planning exhibits and prepping show animals for the fair season, said Steve Beck, state 4-H program leader.
