State Fair Exhibit - 1 educational poster exhibit per division
The 4-H Cat Poster project is intended to be a regular project that 4-H'ers sign up for at the time of initial enrollment. The project is not intended to be an alternative or substitute exhibit for the 4-H Cat Care project. Example: If your cat dies or you cannot show it for health reasons, your animal project will be considered complete if a record is turned in, and you will receive a participation ribbon. Only those 4-H members signing up for the 4-H Cat Educational Poster will be considered for State Fair eligibility at time of Open Judging.
To promote educational displays by 4-H members who enjoy developing a poster exhibit, the following classes shall be offered:
Junior – 4-H'ers in grades 3, 4 and 5
Intermediate - 4-H'ers in grades 6, 7 and 8
Senior - 4-H'ers in grades 9, 10, 11 and 12
Completed record sheets are due into the Extension Office on or before June 29,2020, 4:00 PM. No records, or late/incomplete record sheets will result in an exhibit being considered for EXHIBITION ONLY—NO PLACING.
Use a 22"x 28" poster board with stiff backing, and a clear protective covering, properly labeled. (See Poster Construction Rules on page 24 of your handbook).
