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.
