4-H and the Altamont Fair

  4-Her at the fair

The Altamont Fair is an opportunity for 4-Hers to demonstrate what they have learned all year. For many 4-Hers it may mean winning ribbons for their baked goods or crafts, for others their learning may culminate in the show ring where they show off what they have learned with their project animal. From public presentations to cooking contests 4-Hers use this week to learn, grow, and show off their skills and talents for the public. 

Members may participate in the fair as part of a 4-H club or as an independent member if you are interested in joining 4-H please contact Rachel Lee at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schenectady County. 

If you have any questions about you or your child participating in the Altamont Fair please feel free to reach out to Rachel Lee. Contact information is below.
