                                      LINCOLN COUNTY 4-H LEADERS ASSOCIATION, INC.
                                              2009 OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS
The purpose of a county fair is to provide an opportunity for community members and youth organization members to display items (exhibits) they have made and have them
judged. The whole fair experience is intended to help exhibitors, especially youth, gain a sense of accomplishment, self-worth, and responsibility.

The Lincoln County 4-H Leaders Association, Inc., is the governing body for all 4-H activities in Lincoln County including the Lincoln County 4-H Fair. The Leaders
Association is made up of all registered leaders (adult and youth ages 14 and over). These leaders elect a Board of Directors that is responsible for assisting in planning and
making decisions for carrying out the 4-H program. The Fair Board, consisting of seven to eleven people, is also elected by the Leaders Association. One of the Fair Board
members is a representative from the Board of Directors. The Fair Board conducts, manages, and controls the affairs and business of the annual fair, but is accountable to
the Board of Directors. If you are interested in serving on these boards, please contact one of the people listed below or contact the UW-Extension Office at 536-0304.

           Open Divisions, check the third square and then check
           whether this form is your Junior Division entry or your Open
           Division entry. You must fill out separate entry forms for
           each division. Remember, you cannot enter the same
           type of exhibit or animal in both Junior and Open

Section 4. For Open Division exhibitors only - This section is filled
           in by anyone entering Open Division. If you are a senior
           citizen, check the first box. If you are school age, check the
