No More 4H At The Steuben County Fairs 

It looks like 4H is going to stop using the Steuben County Fairgrounds for the 4H displays.  Cornell Cooperative Extension officials said this morning, that they voted yesterday, to stop using the Steuben County Fairgrounds as a location for 4-H displays.  The statement from Cornell Cooperative Extension reads quote, “a local property that is safe, welcoming and kind to all 4-Hers, families, visitors and staff that allows the 4-H program to follow State and County 4-H rules and policy.  This is currently not guaranteed by the Steuben County Agricultural Society at the Steuben County Fairgrounds. We recommend changes to the venue to provide equity between programs, exhibits, and shows; and a safe and inclusive environment that fosters positive youth development.”  The statement from Cornell Cooperative Extension also says they have to “prioritize the safety of our program participants, families and staff and feel that a change in venue is necessary at this time.”   We were unable to reach the county fair’s office by newstime for a response.
