From Pipi’s Pasture: New Fair Book contest offers opportunity for 4-H youths
There are lots of talented young people in Moffat County, and this year 4-H members have a chance to use their artistic talents to vie for the cover of the 2013 Moffat County Fair Book.
Each year’s book features a unique cover design. Past covers have been designed by Moffat County Extension Office personnel, but this year the Fair Board has decided to try something different. They are having a contest for the 2013 Moffat County Fair Book cover, and they’ve opened it to 4-H members.
The deadline to enter is Feb. 28, so if you’re a 4-H member who’s interested in entering the contest, you’ll have to hurry.
The requirements for the contest are as follows:
• The dimensions are 3 1/2 inches x 10 1/2 inches.
• The design can be portrait or landscape.
• The design can be in color or black and white (if you have questions about using photos, call the Extension Office).
• The design must be “camera ready” (no changes can be made when it is printed).
• The design must include “95th Annual Moffat County Fair.”
• The design must include the fair dates: Aug. 4 through 10, 2013.
• The design must be a Moffat County Fair theme (that means it needs to consist of things that represent the fair).
• Do not include your name on the design entry. On a separate piece of paper, print your name, age and contact information.
• If you have questions, call the Moffat County Extension Office at 970-824-9180.
• The deadline is Feb. 28. Entries are due at the Moffat County Extension Office, 539 Barclay St. in Craig.
If you are a young person who has been thinking about enrolling in 4-H, or if you are an adult with a child who would like to enroll, the time is now. To be eligible to complete a 4-H project in 2013, 4-H enrollment must be received by June 1. However, to ensure leader availability, the Extension Office needs enrollment for the 2013 year as soon as possible. Some clubs are already meeting and working on projects.
Enrollment fees are $30 per member and $20 per Cloverbud member. Forms are available at the county Extension Office.
Sharing thanks, enjoying some laughs, and shedding a few tears are an indicator of the emotional levels that always seem to come with Moffat County High School graduation.
