The Maryland State Fair offers opportunities for people of all ages to enter their most prized items, whatever they may be. There are two main areas (4-H/FFA and OPEN CLASS) in which you can participate in the Maryland State Fair.

First, you can be a 4-H or FFA member enrolled in the 4-H or FFA program. Maryland 4-H Youth Development offers Clover Programs for youth ages 5-7 and 4-H Club programs for youth ages 8-18 (Age 18 as of January 1 of the current year). 4-H is in each Maryland county and Baltimore City, as well as Europe and Korea through a partnership with the CSREES/USDA Army and Air Force. The purpose of 4-H and FFA is to teach children and youth important life skills, as well as public speaking, leadership, etc. Contact your local 4-H Offices or high shool agriculture teacher for names of clubs and leaders near you.
