The purpose of this project and exhibit is to motivate and interest young people in modeling a custom built farm toy display. The 4-H member will create a realistic setting around manufactured or custom built farm toys. Modeling is very personal and involves much imagination; members are encouraged to display their many artistic abilities in this project.

  2. Display must be built on rigid wood (plywood).
  3. Turn in completed Record Sheet with project.
