Kansas is famous for its golden wheat fields all across Kansas. Families have been participating with the Kansas 4-H and FFA State Wheat show for 60 years. Join us in Pratt at the Pratt Area 4-H Center for an exciting educational wheat field day. The wheat show 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.

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.
