For those of you who are participating in the Sunflower Contest, your sunflowers (just the seed heads) are due in the 4-H Office Friday September 4th NO LATER THAN 5:00pm. The Sunflowers will then be split into age groups and judged by the diameter of the seed head. The Judging will begin here in our office at 10:00am, Tuesday September 8th. You DO NOT need to sign up in advance or complete an entry form for the Buncombe County contest. Once judging at our office is over on Tuesday, 4-H’ers are welcome to pick up their sunflowers to enter in the North Carolina Mountain State Fair. Good luck to you all!
