  • Kansas is famous for its golden wheat fields all across Kansas.  Families have been participating with the Kansas 4-H State Wheat Expo for 60+ years.  Join us in Hays at the K-State Ag Research Center Auditorium for an exciting educational wheat fun day dealing in all things wheat.  The wheat expo is open to all 4-H members, family members, 4-H leaders and Extension staff. 

    There again will be eight divisions open to youth members with cash prizes and ribbons awarded.  The wheat divisions include:  (1) 1 lb. bin run for crops members; or (2) 1 lb. bin run for "adopt-a-producer"; Participants may pick division 1 or division 2, but not both.  All wheat samples must be postmarked to KSU by July 20 so testing can be completed.  Other divisions open include (3) 1 quart jar sample of cleaned wheat; (4) three standard yeast rolls; (5) three standard sized cookies; (6) photography contest of wheat-related photos; (7) wheat educational posters or display boards; and (8) a Cloverbuds division for 5-6-year-olds awarding participation ribbons.
