Quality Assurance is a state required training program for any 4-H or FFA member who is exhibiting livestock at the junior fair including rabbits. The Ohio State University Extension is hosting the first QA in 2019 at the Van Wert County Fairgrounds on Sunday, March 3rd starting at 2:00pm until approximately 4:00pm. Youth will most likely not need to be present for the entire two hours, but should plan to be in the case of a large crowd. The second and final Van Wert QA will be offered on Monday, April 22, 2019 in the evening. 

For members eligible for test out, it will be offered starting at 1:00pm in the Jr. Fair Building. Test out is offered to youth 12-14 or 15-18 as of January 1, 2019. Youth who need special accommodations for testing or the sessions should contact the Extension Office for details.

In case of inclement weather please check the OSU Extension webpage at http://vanwert.osu.edu or the Van Wert 4-H Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/vanwert4h
