COVID Safety Measures

This event will be in-person. Registration is required for everyone. We will be following COVID-19 in-person guidelines found here and may make changes if the facility safety protocols differ.

Please do not attend or participate in this event if you are sick or have COVID-19 symptoms (frequent cough, fever, difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, recent loss of taste or smell) or if you or someone you have been in contact with has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

If you are not a registered 4-H youth member or 4-H volunteer, PLEASE READ and SIGN the waiver and photo release form and bring the form on April 23, 2022 at check-in.

This event is an opportunity for 4-H members to submit items they have made for competition at the county level. 4-H members participate in sewing, food, and craft projects throughout the year, creating a wonderful array of handmade goods and visual arts that are showcased during this event.

  • Sewing projects are judged during the Fashion Revue on fit, modeling, and presentation. Members are encouraged to compete at the State Fashion Revue. Competitors must be enrolled in a 4-H sewing project to participate, but there are three categories that are open to all 4-H'ers. 
  • For the Favorite Foods Day traditional competition, members must prepare a dish, place setting, and menu display. Each contestant should be knowledgeable about the preparation of their dish and the nutritional value of the entire menu. Competitors must be enrolled in a 4-H food project to participate, but there is the Pack a Healthy Lunch Challenge that is open to all 4-H'ers. 
  • The Arts and Crafts Expo is a handcraft competition, open to all 4-H members, regardless of 4-H project enrollment. We encourage you to also consider entering your handmade items to the San Mateo County Fair
  • New this year is the Virtual Film Festival. This contest gives youth an opportunity to show their creative visual artwork in the categories of animation, documentary, drama, comedy, promotional and commercial. We will show some of the videos at the award ceremony.
