4-H Horseman without Horses Project

All POSTER exhibits must have a hard backing; such as foam board, plywood, plasterboard, etc., and all posters must have a see- through plastic covering and be displayed horizontally. The thickness of the poster backing should not exceed 5/16 inch. (22" x 28"). If these guidelines are not followed, the exhibit will be judged then dropped one ribbon grade. Leave the area in the lower right hand corner of posters 3" high by 3" wide for a label. Labels will be provided by the Extension Office. The 4-H member's name and club should be permanently marked on the back side of each poster. 4-H members must cite all sources where information was obtained.

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.

Members must complete and turn in a Record Sheet and Horse & Pony Quiz in order to complete the project. The Record Sheet & Quiz must be turned in with the project exhibit at project check-in.
