Farm Scene Project Guidelines

Members are to create realistic toy dioramas from custom-built or manufactured farm toys. In all levels the member must use the same scale throughout the display, i.e. 1/64, 1/32, or 1/16 scale toys. Remember these items will be on display to the public. Effort is made to watch them, but, it is suggested that you NOT display valuable items. Consider adding a clear cover to protect the exhibit while being displayed to the public.


 Exhibitors should be considerate of space. Exhibits too large to safely move or requiring lots of space should be exhibited using photographs and a description of work in a notebook.


 All arts and craft exhibits must include a 4-H Craft Information Card, 4-H 618A. This information card is to describe work completed so the judge can more accurately evaluate the exhibit. Craft information cards are for judging purposes only and will not be returned to the exhibitor.


 If an exhibitor is concerned about their creation being damaged while on display, they should consider constructing a clear plastic cover to encase the exhibit.


Judges evaluating exhibits should recognize individual differences and creativity, therefore using information in this document as a guide rather than a requirement.


Display using base size 24” x 48” and constructed of rigid wood, such as plywood as the foundation board. The board may be flat or contoured. Items must not exceed edges of the base. Exhibit can be created to replicate a farm stead, farm tillage, or agricultural scene (livestock auctions, farm auctions, implement dealerships, agricultural educational events, agricultural field events, etc.) Each year exhibit should be more advanced than the previous year.

Create and exhibit one age/grade appropriate artistic scene or replica.
