Here are the requirements for this project:

GEOLOGY

  1. Complete a record sheet.
  2. Create an exhibit to show the public some of the geology specimens you have collected. Exhibits 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. Or, you may display your specimens in an insect display box (18”x24”), orientated horizontally. Include actual specimens in your exhibit, whenever possible. You can name your own labels for your specimens. See the suggested label format found in the Indiana 4-H Geology Manuals. Boxes make your specimens more secure. Do not put valuable specimens on posters where they can be removed quickly. Be sure to include a label with your name, grade and county. Choose one of the topics listed below, appropriate for your grade in school and use that name for your title. Titles must be in the front of the poster or box.

    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.
