Home Economics Contests at CTYF

The weather is getting warmer, gardens are growing, and livestock projects are looking good.  That can only mean one thing… it’s nearly time for the Central Texas Youth Fair!  This year, the Central Texas Youth Fair will be held May 30 – June 3 at the Clifton Fairgrounds.  The 4-H and FFA youth have been working hard on their projects for the Livestock Show, Ag Mechanics Contest, and Home Economics Show, and we are excited to see them compete!

Did you know that any Bosque County resident can take part in the Central Texas Youth Fair?  The Home Economics Division has a little something for everyone!  The categories are:  Photography, Crafts, Homegrown Vegetables, Art, Canned Goods, Horticulture, and Baked Goods.   Anyone from four years-old and up can participate!

The Home Economics Contest is a great way to get the whole family involved!  Whether you enjoy taking photos with your kids or baking pies with your grandkids, you can find a category and bring your best items!

The entry forms are due on Monday, May 1.  You bring your items to the Fair on Thursday, June 1, to be judged and displayed.  Entry forms and contest rules can be found online at https://bosque.agrilife.org/4-h/central-texas-youth-fair/.   Contact the Bosque County Extension Office for paper forms or more information at 254-435-2331.
