Posters must be displayed horizontally, sized 22”x28”, mounted on a firm backing (foam-core board or other), and covered in clear plastic or other transparent material. Be sure to include a label with your name, grade and county. Title your exhibit with one of the following: archery,outdoor skills, muzzleloading, pistol, rifle, shotgun or shooting sports. You can use a subtitle if you wish. Complete a record sheet.


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.
