Registration Information

Registration opens 5pm Monday, June 7. Registration closes 12pm Wednesday, June 30, 2021!

  • When you are registering for in-person classes, you are just signing up for the class. There may be some entries that ask you a series of questions (i.e. YQCA certificate number, etc.)
  • Once registration opens, you will go to our county's Fair Entry website and use your 4-H online information to login.
    • Use this link to our FairEntry website to access the registration system when it opens at 5pm on Monday, June 7, 2021.
    • If you have any questions or concerns, or need assistance registering your project submission, please email Sara Lewis (seitzsa1@msu.edu) or Claudia Paddy (paddycla@msu.edu).
    • Upon submission of projects, you will receive an invoice for pen fees. All pen fees will be due to the Monroe County MSU Extension Office by 4pm on Thursday, July 1--checks made payable to Monroe County Fair Association. Pen fees not received by this date will be considered ineligible.
  • A variety of classes will be offered as virtual entries. We understand that there may be circumstances where virtual entries may be needed to accommodate your needs as a result of COVID-19. However, you must choose either ALL in-person or ALL virtual classes. You cannot mix and match. For example, you cannot enter an in-person market beef class and a virtual public speaking project.
    • In this video you will see a demonstration of how exhibitors will submit entries through the FairEntry system. If you are registering for virtual classes, you will also be submitting the project itself.
      • Submission will mainly be uploading still photos of the project, but there are some classes that will ask for a video or potentially a document. See the project area rules during the project entry process to learn what you need to submit for classes.
      • Check out these Tips for Taking Photos and Video!
  • Due to our continued limitations, not all classes will be offered this year. Please see our Addendum & Class Eliminations/Changes, which can also be found above, to check what classes are NOT available.
