Project Requirements

Exhibits will be shown by grade as follows:

Level 1: Grades 3-5 (4 pages)
Level 2: Grades 6-8 (6 pages)
Level 3: Grades 9-12 (10 pages)

♥  Carefully read the project manual & requirements.

♥  Album (or three ring binder for Level 1)

♥  Each Scrapbook album will have a label (attached with string)
    with the 4-H member’s name, club and grade. Attach sticky notes
    to each page that you want judged, numbering them 1 through 10.
    Display only the pages you want judged. Leave a blank page covered
    with a page protector at the end of your completed pages so that
    your scorecard can be inserted.

♥  Judging: Scrapbook projects are judged prior to the LaGrange County
    4-H Fair, on a date to be announced. 


General Rules for All Scrapbooks

1. Neatness is very important. Exhibit clean pages with clear handwriting.
    Your handwriting is part of your heritage, please use it often! Some computer
    created writing is allowed, but will not improve your score.

2. Please spell words correctly and use a dictionary if necessary.

3. Keep in mind that proper placement of photos, etc. in your album, is important
    
because your scrapbook is telling a story. Use chronology (putting things in 
order
    of occurrence) or seasonal activities to organize your scrapbook.

4. Journaling is to be used along with your photos and memorabilia. Without
    
journaling, over time, your photos and memorabilia will become less meaningful
    
to you and others.

5. Using a variety of cropping and matting techniques and page layouts will add
    interest and creativity to your album. Not everything has to be cropped or ‘artsy’.
    Use a nice balance, keeping in mind that the main focus is preservation and not
    how many stickers or fancy papers you can use on a page!

6. If memorabilia is required, encase the memorabilia in a plastic sleeve, or use an
    archival spray, making sure that the memorabilia is not touching pictures being
    displayed on the same page.

7. All pages should have been completed since the last years 4-H. 

8. The scrapbook album must demonstrate a good sense of the entire project and
    what it means to preserve our memories.

9. If you have taken the 4-H Scrapbook project in previous years, do not include
    any pages you have submitted for judging in the past. Only display this year’s
    requirements.
