Instructions for Entering Booths or Banners
This year, one of the club leaders will need to enter the booth and/or banner in the FairEntry System. To do this, after you sign in using your 4HOnline account, please add an exhibitor that is your club name. Then you will find the Booth and Banners department to enter the exhibit.
4-H Foundation and Project Clubs can enter the same way.  Open class Booths & Banners will also need to pre-enter using our new system
~~Please let Katelyn at kbarth25@ksu.edu or Karla at khightow@ksu.edu know if you have any problems.
