4-H Showcase at the Florida State Fair February 12

On Saturday February 12th from 10 a.m. -4:00 p.m. Florida 4-H is having its annual 4-H Showcase at the Florida State Fair. This year there are many fun hands on exhibits planned, as we promote our many activities from across the state. The Showcase takes place in the Charles M. Davis Special Events Center.

At the Pinellas County 4-H exhibits youth will have the opportunity to complete four make-and-take experiential activities as they become the scientist. These activities promote 4-H Science and teach youth the skills to apply science in every day life. The four experiments are:

Power of Electricity: Making a Simple Switch

Aerospace Adventures: Building a Milk Straw Rocket

Entomology: Bee Comb an Engineer

4-H Forestry: Trees and Me

In addition to the 4-H Science activities, 4-H camp staff, Operation Military Kids, 4-H District Council, and others will be there with more fun 4-H activities for all to enjoy.

On each Saturday of the Fair, 4-H members and leaders are given free admittance with their 4-H card or 4-H shirt. 4-H families should enter through Gate 3.
