RECYCLING

No State Fair Entries



Complete two activities in the handout for your level plus the project record sheet.

 

Exhibit General Rules

The recycling project is based on the 4 R’s (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Recover) and should involve at least one of the following guidelines:

♣  The material is reshaped from one form to another, or

♣  The material is reprocessed from one form to another, or
♣  The material is redesigned into a different type of product.

Projects will be judged based on originality, creativity, and the exhibitor’s use of discarded, recyclable materials.

4-H’ers should keep in mind that new items purchased specifically for this exhibit defeat the purpose of recycling.
