Display Your Projects at the FairSubmitted: 06/13/2013
Story By Ryan Michaels

RHINELANDER - Whether you make great cookies or great works of art, Oneida County Fair organizers want to see what you can do.

The county fair doesn't start until August 1st. But organizers need your project submissions before July 1st.

You just need to decide what you'd like to show off and then figure out which category or exhibition book your project falls under.

Oneida County U.W. 4-H Youth Development Agent Lynn Feldman says there's an exhibition book for just about any project and age.

"Maybe there's a special picture that you took this year that you would like to have other people see and you would like to have critiqued by a judge. Then you take this exhibition book and look through the cultural arts category, look for the photography area, and then it will show you the different types of photography exhibits that can be brought in."

The exhibition books and entry forms can be found at the Rhinelander Chamber, the Rhinelander Senior Center, or at the UW-Extension Office located at the Rhinelander Airport.

RHINELANDER - Celebrating our nation's birthday with family and friends can be a great time. But it's good to keep safety in mind this weekend too.
