2020 Kansas 4-H Wheat Expo

What: Join us the 2020 Kansas 4-H Wheat Expo.  The 2020 wheat expo will be one of Kansas 4-H's first face-to-face state 4-H events since COVID-19 shut down physical/face-to-face 4-H programming in March.  We are excited to bring the wheat expo back for a fun, educational and hands-on program in person for all Kansas 4-H members, siblings, parents, grandparents, volunteer 4-H leaders and KSRE staff.

Kansas is famous for its golden wheat fields all across Kansas. Families have been participating with the Kansas 4-H State Wheat Expo for 65+ years. Join us at the Sedgwick County Extension Office on August 6th for an exciting educational wheat fun day dealing in all things wheat. Full information and details are now available.

There will be nine 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.
