       State Fair          Centennial             more
      info inside!         Celebration          events for
                                                  2008!




October 4, 2008 from 10AM – 4PM at Historic Oak View Park
    A celebration of past, present, and future
Dear 4-Hers, Parents, and Friends,

It’s that time of the year again! Time to get geared up for Heritage Day and Youth Fair Day! This
year’s event will be held on October 4th from 10AM – 4PM at Historic Oak View Park in Raleigh.
Youth Fair Day always celebrates the past, present, and future of 4-H, and this year takes this
challenge to a new level!

We have even more to celebrate this year, as we prepare for the 100th birthday of North Carolina 4-H!
You will see a few new categories in this booklet and they are related to the NC 4-H Centennial
Celebration! We have an ice-cream design contest, opportunities to be in Centennial Cookbook, and
a chance for you to design the NC 4-H Centennial stamp! All of these have different deadlines, so be
sure to read these Centennial Competition section (pages 10 to 11) very carefully!

In addition, 4-H continues to work very closely with Wake County Human Services in developing the
Expressions of Art Contest that highlights overcoming or finding ways to avoid addiction to alcohol,
tobacco, and other drugs. Youth ages nine and up are invited to create a piece of art, a poem, or
essay that shares their anti-drug message! During the month of September, Wake County buildings
will feature a traveling display and an opportunity to vote on the artistic entry of your choice. Winners
will be announced at 11:15 AM at Youth Fair Day!

Our t-shirt design contest is back again this year, too! Look for details on page 12. If you sing,
dance, play an instrument, step, or have any other interesting talents, please call (919) 250-1092 to
enter the Talent Show!

We would also like to invite clubs to come out and show their support for 4-H by creating a club table
or display to share what you are doing in 4-H. Remember that Youth Fair Day is a large public event
that drew over 1,000 people last year, so this is a great opportunity to recruit new youth and
volunteers! Please call (919) 250-1092 for details on how to reserve a (free) table for your club!

Be sure to read this guide carefully – there is a lot of information here! I hope that it is helpful to have
everything in one place, and have tried to bold or highlight where there are deadlines, exceptions, or
important notes!

Thank you for your continued support of 4-H! Making the best better happens every single day in
Wake County through club meetings, 4-H friendships, informal mentoring, staff-led groups, and youth
adult partnerships. Let’s come together at Youth Fair Day to celebrate our 4-H heritage and kick off a
new century of clover culture!

As always, if you have questions, please email me at heather.tart@co.wake.nc.us or call me at (919)
250-1093.

Best,

4-H Centennial Flavor Cone-Test
Calling all flavorologists!!! In partnership with the NC State Creamery, 4-H is designing and
producing our very own North Carolina 4-H Centennial Flavor, and we need your help!

Wake County will submit ONE recipe entry to the state level! This means we need to have a county-
wide search for the best-ever ice cream flavor! We’ll make our own samples of our winning entry
at Youth Fair Day, but we need all recipe entries submitted by August 21st at 5PM! Your recipe
should start with the ice cream base of your choosing (i.e. you need not include the recipe for vanilla
ice cream, just that vanilla ice cream is the base). Go wild and concoct something yummy…the
NCSU Dairy folks can get lots of different ingredients!!!

Here are the rules:
      No nuts or peanut butter can be used
      Use only one “background flavor” (eg. Vanilla, chocolate, sweet potato, cheesecake, etc.)
      Use only one “inclusion” (eg M&Ms, cherries, graham crackers, chocolate chips, etc.)
      Use only one “swirl” ingredient (eg. Fudge, butterscotch, raspberry, etc.)
      Entries do not have to use inclusions or swirls.
      Don’t forget to name your creation

I.        Purpose and Application:

          A.    The 4-H Code of Conduct is intended to foster a safe environment that is conducive to
                optimal learning and growth. Toward that end, youth participants are expected to
                behave in a way that respects the rights and property of others, and that will not disrupt
                or interfere with 4-H program goals.
          B.    This 4-H Code of Conduct and Disciplinary Procedure is a condition of participation in
                any North Carolina 4-H activities or programs.

          A.    Possession, selling, and/or use of alcoholic beverages, tobacco products, and illegal

                any illegal substances
          B.    Any kind of sexually related physical contact

                indecent, or otherwise disruptive to the operations or goals of 4-H. Examples include
                clothing with negative or hateful language or symbols; see-through blouses, skirts or
                pants; sagging pants; exposed undergarments; bare midriff shirts; and excessively short
                or tight garments. Clothing should meet the standards expected in public schools.
                Specific clothing requirements may be required where appropriate for a particular event

          has oversight responsibility for 4-H activities.
       B. Unless immediate action is required, the following procedures must take place before there
          can be any finding or conclusion of guilt:

          1) the accused participant shall be told the charge (which of the prohibited behaviors listed
                 above he or she is accused of violating), and

                                                                                                       15

      and or 4-H Agent. All appeals must in writing and must be received by the County Director
      and or 4-H Agent within 30 days of the disciplinary action. The County Director and or 4-H
      Agent or designee shall review the appeal statement, any written response from the decision
      maker, and may review other relevant information. The County Director and or 4-H Agent shall
      send a written decision to the appellant, the 4-H staff member who made the initial decision,
      and Head of the Department of 4-H Youth Development. The County Director and or 4-H
      Agent’s appeal decision shall constitute the final agency action unless the Department Head
      chooses to exercise further review.

      2) Disciplinary action for regional or state-level events may be appealed to the Head of the
      Department of 4-H Youth Development, Cooperative Extension Service, Box 7606, NC State
      University, Raleigh NC 27695-7606; telephone (919) 515-3242. All appeals must in writing

      Department Head or designee shall review the appeal statement, any written response from
      the decision maker, and may review other relevant information. The Department Head shall
      send a written decision to the appellant and the 4-H staff member who made the initial
      decision, and the Department Head’s appeal decision shall constitute the final organizations
      action.

   F. Immediate action situations:
      4-H or Extension staff may take immediate action to remove a participant from an activity and
      other action as needed, where there is an emergency situation or significant risk of continuing
      misconduct. In those cases, the immediate action is temporary discipline and the 4-H or
      Extension staff must arrange for the procedures in parts B, C, D, and E above as soon as
      possible but in no event longer than seven days from the temporary discipline.
