Edgar County 4-H Association would like to invite you to take part in the Edgar County 4-H Livestock & Food Auction to support the youth participating in this year’s virtual Edgar County 4-H Fair. The auction will be held online through sconlinesale.com beginning Monday, August 3 at 8 AM and end at 3 PM Tuesday, August 4. Due to Covid-19, there will be no exchange of animals or food.
We encourage you to register for the auction at www.sconlinesale.com by selecting the “register” tab and creating an account. You will be asked for a phone number when registering. Please be sure to use a cell phone number, as a verification code will be sent to your phone. You will need this verification code to complete the registration. Once you have created an account and logged in, you will click any of the four tabs (cattle, pigs, sheep/goats, rabbits/poultry) to find our auction. The food auction will be found here as well. You can then begin bidding on the project(s) and exhibitor(s) of your choice. Payment for successful bids will be made by credit card at the sconlinesale.com website.
If the online bidding option does not work for you, you can support the youth with a donation or add-on premium to an exhibitor of your choice OR by contributing to the “Dirt Poor Farmers Fund.” This fund was created so each 4-H member receives an adequate premium. The Edgar County 4-H Association will distribute the fund amongst the exhibitors. Payment for donations, add-on premiums or the “Dirt Poor Farmers Fund” will be made by check payable to Edgar County 4-H Association.
If you plan to donate additional premiums, please try to do so in advance – it is easier for bookkeeping. These donations/add-ons, along with a check, need to be sent to Penny Peterson at 19696 E 1050th Rd, Paris, IL 61944, before August 1, 2020. Checks are to be made payable to Edgar Country 4-H Association.
With this year being one for the record books we are so thankful for your continued support. Your support of the development of these youth is greatly appreciated.
