Needle Craft Project Resources

Showcasing What You’ve Learned

Project exhibits are submitted for judging at the annual Marion County 4-H Showcase. You may enter as many projects as you want, but consider which of your pieces you are most proud of and want to showcase. Create and exhibit age/grade-appropriate artwork.

Exhibit Guidelines

Score Cards

  • Needle Craft Score Card. Judges evaluating exhibits recognize individual differences and creativity and use the score card as a guide rather than a requirement.

Advancing to the State Fair

  • Yes! Needle craft project exhibits from 4-H members grades 3 and up may advance to the State Fair.

Cloverbuds (Grades K-2)


  • Cloverbud 4-H members can create and enter any piece of art or craft, with a limit of four entries total in any of the categories.
  • Cloverbud projects are for exhibition only (not judged), so there are no score cards, and exhibits are not eligible to advance to the State Fair.
