4-H Collections

March 5, 2020

SUPERINTENDENT: Amanda Paikos 812-361-5506 apaikos@oliverwinery.com

Monroe County Achievement Record Sheet required

Collections Record Sheet, Question Sheet, and Collection Story are required

  1. The Fair Board and 4-H Board cannot take responsibility for the damage, loss, or theft of a collector’s exhibit. It is therefore recommended that valuable objects be protected in a display case or left at home.
  2. A completed Collections Record Sheet, Question Sheet, and Collection Story, available on the Purdue Extension-Monroe County Website or at the Purdue Extension-Monroe County Office, must accompany your collection. Your collection story must be on a sheet of white 8½” x 11” paper (lined or unlined). It can be written in ink or typed.

Divisions 1 and 2 cannot exceed 100 words

Advanced Division cannot exceed 150 words.

  1. In all divisions, if the collection is too large or valuable to exhibit, a notebook containing photographs and descriptions of your collection can be exhibited in place of your collection. Photo quality will not be judged, but they should be clear, sharp photos if possible. All photos should be neatly arranged and labeled.
  2. Please note we have limited exhibit space.

DIVISION 1

Exhibit a portion or example of your collection. Make an attractive display. Please complete a Record Sheet, Question Sheet, and Collection Story. Division 1 can be repeated (only once) if the 4-Her starts a new collection that is different from the previous year’s collection in Division I.

DIVISION 2

Exhibit a new collection or continuation of your Division 1 collection, with a completed Record Sheet, Question Sheet, and Collection Story. Division 2 can be repeated once, if the 4-Her starts a new collection, different from the previous year, in Division 2.

ADVANCED

Exhibit a continuation of previous divisions or a new collection and a completed Record Sheet, Question Sheet, and Collection Story. Exhibits should be in a display case or covered box. Members receiving Champion in Advanced Division can repeat this division, but must exhibit a completely different collection. All others may repeat this division by adding to the previous year’s collection.
