Forms & Documents


After consulting with Extension Administration, P.W. Wood, our partners in Animal Sciences, many of you, and State Fair leadership, it has been decided to suspend 4-H’s participation in the New York State Fair for 2020. See the NYS 4-H State Office’s Letter regarding this decision for more information.

Please go to NYS Fair Information page for all Fair-related links and information. 

Most of the entry forms below are pdf files, designed to be filled out on your computer, then printed. If you are unable to use a computer to fill out your forms, please be extremely careful that your hand-printing is clear and legible.
