Kansas is famous for its golden wheat fields all across Kansas. Families have been participating with the Kansas 4-H State Wheat show for nearly 60 years. Join us near Great Bend at the Wetlands Education 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. All wheat samples must be postmarked by KSU by July 15 so testing can be completed. Other divisions open include (3) 1 quart jar sample of cleaned wheat; (4) three standard yeast rolls; (5) four 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.
