This page is your source for information about the STEM Ag Mechanics project. Some know this as welding, brazing, or smithing. Yes, if you are a youth interested in these areas, you may now exhibit at the Kansas State Fair.
For 2023 we are allowing exhibits of all sizes in Ag Mechanics. Chances are if they require a trailer to get to the fair (or the exhibit its self is a trailer) they will be displayed outside. You must contact the State 4-H office no later than August 24th if your exhibit is larger than five feet in any dimension.
Per rule 19: “Each exhibit, except for display boards, must include an Ag Mechanics
information packet.” This is a clarification to the 2022 rules.
