Any project without a completed judging sheet will not be judged or exhibited.

Completed projects along with entry forms must be dropped off at the Lackawanna County Penn State Extension Office by Wednesday, July 15, no later than 4 p.m. Perishable projects are to be dropped off directly to the Showground between 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 8.  Entry forms for perishable projects are due to the Extension Office by July 15.

Please contact the Lackawanna County Extension Office at 570-963-6842 with any questions or requests for more copies of the entry form, roundup guide, or judging sheet.
