KJLS Entries Due
The deadline for KJLS entries is August 15. All entries must be made online, using the link on the www.kjls.org homepage. Families need to have their KSU Nomination # and YQCA certification numbers available to complete the process for each child. Youth are also encouraged to enter the LEAD Challenge. This is a unique opportunity for youth to showcase their knowledge of the livestock industry, but exhibitors need to declare their intent to participate during the entry process. Showmanship is also a component of the LEAD Challenge, so participants need to make sure they are entered in their respective showmanship division to be eligible.
The Kansas State Fair Grand Drive entry deadline has passed, but all of those who did enter need to watch their email for their credentials. Families will need it to enter the fairgrounds and receive their exhibitor packets.
Agents and FFA Advisors will receive instructions from KJLS regarding approving entries for youth from their respective organization. This will all be done online, similar to last year. The state fair approval process should be complete. Counties who have not approved entries for their members need to contact the state fair directly.
Everyone is encouraged to double check the rules for each show prior to entry and arrival to make the check-in process and livestock shows go as smoothly as possible.
