The 4-H Dog Poster Educational 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 Dog Care and Obedience project. Only those 4-H members signing up for the 4-H Dog Poster Educational project will be considered for State Fair eligibility at time of Open Judging.
State Fair Exhibit -1 educational poster exhibit per division.
To promote educational displays by 4-H members who enjoy developing a poster exhibit, the following classes will be offered:
Junior—4-H'ers in grades 3, 4 & 5
Intermediate—4-H'ers in grades 6, 7 & 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—page 24 of your handbook.)
