Visit the 4H Building at the State Fair

Extension is celebrating their centennial this year! To commemorate their anniversary they have created a great exhibit at the entrance of the 4H building; it's worth checking out! Kristen Mastel, Extension's librarian, created a poster of Extension publications through the years, and is on display in the 4H building at another centennial exhibit behind the Magic performing arts space. Check out "What is Old is New Again: Extension publications stay relevant through the years" in person!
