Here are the requirements for this project:

AEROSPACE

Each county would be permitted to send one rocket, remote control aircraft, or drone and one poster/display board in each grade category (3-5, 6-8, and 9-12). Thus each county could send a maximum of six exhibits to the state fair, 3 rockets, remote control aircrafts, or drones and 3 poster/display boards. No "Ready to Fly" or E2X rockets are acceptable in the 4-H Aerospace project.

*NO ENGINES, NO READY TO FLY OR E2X MAY BE BROUGHT TO THE FAIR*

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 member’s 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.

*Rockets may be exhibited with a base, but launch pads are not permitted. All rockets must weigh less than 3.3 pounds and considered an amateur rocket according to FAA regulations.
