DUBOIS COUNTY -- Organizers of the Dubois County 4-H Fair have announced that, "out of an abundance of caution," they will hold the 2020 fair virtually instead of in person, according to a statement released a short time ago by Purdue Extension.
Youth will have the option to exhibit projects virtually via video, photo, and document submission online. Details on project submission and logistics of the virtual fair will be coming soon.
See the full statement from Fair officials below...
Out of an abundance of caution and in an effort to keep our youth, volunteers, and community safe, the Dubois County 4-H Council in partnership with Purdue Extension- Dubois County, has elected to have the 2020 4-H Fair Virtually.
While Indiana’s Back on Track plan would allow for events of this size by fair time if we make it to Stage 5, it is not a guarantee. In addition, requirements from Purdue University to use PPE, social distancing, temperature checks, and tracking of participants and visitors on the grounds, would make it nearly impossible comply with policy and still provide a positive experience for our youth.
Youth will have the option to exhibit projects virtually via video, photo, and document submission online.
Details on project submission and logistics of the virtual fair will be coming soon. Details will be posted in 4honline and on social media. All fair related events on the fairgrounds are cancelled. Be sure to join us during fair week July 13-17 to help us celebrate our youth and their accomplishments virtually!
