Explore the amazing world of insects and their arthropod relatives. Learn exciting new things about insects and their life cycle. Collect insects and construct an entomology box so that others can learn about insects as well. This project is filled with many hands on activities that you will enjoy and want to share with others.
Please follow Missouri State Fair entomology box guidelines when building your box. Unit 1 of the Kentucky 4-H curriculum is helpful (see additional resources), but be aware that the box size described in Kentucky's curriculum is slightly different than what the Missouri State Fair requires.
Explore all the college and career opportunities agriculture and natural resources have to offer through this unique chance to participate in hands-on activities with Mizzou’s CAFNR professors and students.
4-H exhibits and competitions are part of the fun of the Missouri State Fair. You won't want to miss this special event; visit the 4-H building to see the projects of our 4-H youth or catch the judging competitions. Whatever your niche, there is something for everyone. Bring the family! The Missouri State Fair is located at the intersection of Highways 50 and 65, and less than 20 miles south of I-70, Sedalia is roughly an hour from Kansas City, Columbia and Jefferson City.
