Sunny and Bright!


The ladies in the Green Barn have determined a theme for entries in Sewing/Needlecraft as well as Photography and Art. This year the future is so bright, they are highlighting the color yellow. There will be special categories for your entries, so start planning now. 

Coloring Resources

A Google search for free coloring pages will get you some great and some really sucky coloring pages you can print at home. Here are some links to some fair related coloring pages (I tried to find some for all our exhibitors):

FFA & 4H Members

I got this from Ms Whitmore, the FFA Advisor at Deer Park High School. These are some great resources for kids to start honing their skills for the upcoming show season. 

During this time many FFA and 4-H members are finishing their school year online at home. Raised in a Barn has put together a list of resources full of fun and educational videos, music, and worksheets to help you continue learning.

What You Can Do - Show off your SAE on social media. 

Go Facebook Live to talk about FFA or 4-H.  

Log hours in AET. 

I know these are tough times. I think the second paragraph in the FFA Creed says it best, “I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours of discouragement, I cannot deny.”

Quilts Block Challenge - Quilts of Valor

This year we will be partnering with Quilts of Valor to create a quilt for a service member or veteran who has been touched by war.  All blocks submitted will be used to create a quilt and then it will be given to honor a military member. 


Your quilt block(s) must be red, white and blue and can include patriotic prints.  They must measure 12.5" and be carefully pressed as the completed block will measure 12".  You may enter up to 3 blocks in Class 7, Lot C when submitted.  You will receive a participation ribbon but please realize that your block(s) will not be returned to you.


The mission of Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. For more information about Quilts of Valor programs, please visit www.qovf.org If you would like to make additional blocks, please see the Quilts of Valor site as they are trying to obtain 20,000 blocks in 2020.
