Wood County 4-H & FFA Summer Showcase 2022

The Wood County 4-H & FFA Summer Showcase will be held July 18-23, 2022, and open to the public July 19-23, at the Wood County 4-H Campgrounds. Thanks to all of our volunteers and donors for their generous support to make this event possible for our youth in 2022.

Several family-friendly activities are planned for the week, and youth have the opportunity to enter exhibits into an open Art and Photography Contest thanks to the Parkersburg Art Center and Neal Smith Images. A Pet Show and Parade is also scheduled and open to all youth thanks to the generous support of Pet Supplies Plus, Pet Smart, and Rural King.

Adults are welcome to become members of the CEOS (Community Educational Outreach Service) and can enter exhibits as members of the organization.
