The McHenry County 4-H Show offers an excellent opportunity for our 4-H members to grow and learn though sharing knowledge they have gained in their project areas.

4-H fair judging is also an opportunity for youth to receive positive feedback, develop communication skills and increase their self-esteem. Our goal is that EACH 4-H member has a successful exhibit experience!
