Michigan State Fair 4-H & Youth Virtual Showcase

MSU4H SHOWCASE LOGO[7]Michigan State University Extension is thrilled to partner again in 2024 with the Michigan State Fair on an exciting program for Michigan youth: the Michigan State Fair 4-H & Youth Virtual Showcase. This statewide showcase provides a virtual platform for youth across Michigan to exhibit their work in all project areas and apply for up to $10,000 in scholarships. Any Michigan youth ages 5-19 is encouraged to participate; 4-H membership is not required. 

The diverse array of classes celebrate all the projects and programs in which youth have developed skill and mastery. This includes livestock and animal showmanship classes, as well as still exhibits, educational projects and more. There is no cost to participate and youth may engage in as many classes as they wish by submitting project photos and videos

Entry registration is now open and will close on August 10.  4-H members may register by clicking on the green button and using your 4-H Online login.  Non-4-H members may register by clicking the blue sign-in button and creating an account.  

Project evaluation occurs before the start of the Michigan State Fair so that winners can be announced at the event which occurred August 29 -September 2. In addition to the opportunity to showcase their skills, recognize their accomplishments and receive constructive feedback for growth and development, participants in the Michigan State Fair 4-H & Youth Virtual Showcase also have the opportunity to apply for $10,000 in scholarships. Find the applications and criteria on the Michigan State Fair website
