EXHIBIT GUIDELINES:

• Garments must be purchased since the previous year's fair. Accessories may be purchased or selected from items already owned. Notebooks are due by 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23, 20120. You may turn them in at the Extension Office or at project judging on Monday, June 22nd by 8:00 p.m.
• Wear the garment and accessories you have purchased for judging.

• Notebook scores will be kept separate from the Fashion Revue scores. In other words, notebook scores will not reflect modeling scores, and vise-versa. Notebook scores will be based strictly on the contents of the notebook and how well the member has followed the rules and guidelines. The interview score will still be a small part of the grading.
• Fashion Revue is optional.
