The Minnesota State Fair kicks off next week and once again the University and Extension are participating in Minnesota's Great Get-Together. I am pleased to see that our presence at the State Fair this year represents the many ways we connect with our audiences, from the traditional face-to-face demonstrations to the use of technology to reach people from a distance.
If you happen to be in the Twin Cities during the Fair, I hope you have an opportunity to stop by the fairgrounds and visit the University's building, the 4-H building and the Master Gardener exhibits in the Horticulture building. If not, you can still stay connected through technology.
A few Extension State Fair highlights:
Master Gardeners will be giving demonstrations during the 12 days of the fair in the horticulture building. See the schedule for more information.
Check out 4-H News to see highlights of 4-H media coverage and daily highlights from the Minnesota State Fair as well as happenings across the state. This year we are offering a new feature - the ability to check 4-H competition results during the fair using handheld devices! State Fair Results pages will be updated frequently during the fair.
Follow many other University happenings at the fair at the Discover the U at the Minnesota State Fair website.
I hope you enjoy these last days of summer.
