The Winnebago County 4-H Leaders Association needs your help at the 4-H Basket Raffle during the county fair located in the Expo building.  Please consider signing up for one or more shifts.  It’s fun and it’s in an AIR CONDITIONED building!

Note:  Youth are welcome to help monitor the table, but an adult leader must be present with them

It’s time to put together baskets for the 4-H Leaders’ Association Annual Basket Raffle held at the 2021 Winnebago County Fair! We need the support of ALL 4-H clubs to make this year’s raffle a success. Anyone can donate a raffle basket! All clubs are encouraged to donate a theme basket(s) (bath/spa, date night, child-themed, holiday, sports, gardening, camping, birding, cooking, grilling, artist, etc). Don’t forget to contact local businesses or individuals. All are welcome to donate baskets to support 4-H!

Can’t donate an entire basket? Individual items can be combined with other items or placed in baskets by the Basket Raffle Committee. All baskets must be:

  • In a container of some kind – basket, tote, bucket, cooler, etc.
  • Wrapped in cellophane or a clear plastic bag. Wrapping the basket will keep things clean and help ensure that the contents stay in baskets while on display at the fairgrounds.
  • Include a clearly displayed card/sign listing items in basket and thanking any donors
  • NO perishable items, alcohol or tobacco products
  • Baskets must be dropped off at the Extension Office by noon on Friday, July 29 2022


We have established the following schedule for the 4-H Dipper at the county fair:

Wednesday, 8/3/2022 – 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM

Thursday, 8/4/2022 – 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM

Friday, 8/5/2022 – 11:00 AM to 8:30 PM

Saturday, 8/6/2022 – 11:00 AM to 8:30 PM

Sunday, 8/7/2022 – 11:00 AM to 2:30 PM

  • We will be using SignUp Genius again to help register volunteers for shifts across the various days of the fair as well as a Dipper Prep and Clean date on Sunday, 7/31/2022 and a Dipper shutdown date on Monday, 8/8/2022.
  • Each 4-H Dipper shift will be 2 hours and should consist of 4 Adults/Older Youth (8th Grade and higher) and 4 younger youth (Cloverbuds through 7th grade).
  • Responsibilities may vary depending on shift but we would prefer to have adults and older youth handle the cash box, scoop ice cream, make shakes and malts, and help supervise the team during the shift. Younger youth can serve drinks, take orders on the iPAD, and help put toppings on the sundaes.
  • The opening and closing shifts will have 30 minutes of time to handle the necessary tasks to either open the dipper in the morning or close down the dipper in the evening. You will see that time as part of the shift descriptions.
  • Clubs can sign up for shifts but we ask that the individuals that will be working the shift sign up for their times so we can learn names and know who is coming to help us work the shifts. Remember, the idea of the signups is to add flexibility to YOUR fair schedule. Pick times that will work for you and your family or you and your club and help us out! It is a great opportunity to meet other youth and adults from around the county you may not see on a regular basis.
  • Please visit https://tinyurl.com/4abrcuk4 to sign up for your Dipper shifts and if you have any questions, please contact a member of the Dipper committee. We will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to working with you at the 2022 Winnebago County Fair!
