Consumer Clothing

January 7, 2020

State Fair Exhibit: The exhibit sent to State Fair will be the notebook only. One project will be selected for State Fair from each division.

Consumer Clothing participants will be judged prior to the Fair at a county judging session. Videos will be allowed for completion, but 4-H’er will not be considered for State Fair entry.

This is a project designed for both boys and girls involving ready-to-wear garments. Members may enroll in both Consumer Clothing and Sewing. Select and enroll in the proper grade group:
Beginner -grades 3, 4 and 5
Intermediate -grades 6, 7 and 8
Advanced -grades 9, 10, 11 and 12.

All posters, notebooks, and display boards must include a reference list indicating where information was obtained, giving credit to the original author, to complete the 4-H members exhibit.  This reference list should/might include web site links, people and professionals interviewed, books, magazines, etc.  It is recommended this reference list be attached to the back of a poster or display board, be the last page of a notebook, or included as part of the display visible to the public.  A judge is not to discredit an exhibit for the manner in which references are listed.

**For personal safety concerns, notebooks exhibited should only contain name, county, grade, level and club, and no personally identifiable information such as mailing address or phone number.
