Crafts will be judged by grades.
- A Champion and Reserve Champion will be selected for each grade in each craft if the judge feels there is an article of enough merit to deserve the honor. State Fair entries will be determined by the judges. Champions and Reserve Champions will be selected from the honor group.
- Members may exhibit in more than one craft project (example: 1 exhibit in freelance, 1 exhibit in models).
- All items must be complete and ready for use; if a picture, it must be ready for hanging; needlecraft projects are to be ready for intended use; all other crafts are to be finished as required.
- Each year should be a new learning experience, therefore, more difficult exhibits should be made each year.
- Needlework may be placed in clear plastic bag for display.
- A pair or set is considered one article, i.e. mittens, slippers, salt and pepper shakers, pitcher and bowl, tablecloth and/or napkins.
- Projects not meeting division requirements will be lowered one ribbon grade.
- All crafts must have a 4-H Craft Information Card attached to the project.
- If multiple pieces make up the exhibit, a photograph of the complete exhibit should be attached to the exhibit so the total exhibit can be properly displayed.
- For safety purposes, any craft exhibit that resembles a sword, knife, or a look-a-like weapon will be judged but will not be displayed.
Attach a completed 4-H Craft Information Card to your project.
Project Exhibit Guidelines:
- Exhibit may be of any design.
- You may use any type of snap-together building blocks to complete your project. The exhibit may be a creative depiction of an object or a scene.
- Lego kits will be judged separately from Lego displays of original design. BTR, Mega Blocks and other Lego-compatible brands will be judged together.
- The Miscellaneous category will include Ellos, Erector Sets and other construction sets.
- All construction must be displayed on a sturdy base.
- All building blocks used must be from the same type of building blocks.
- No decals, cutting, painting, filling, or using crayon markers, etc. on blocks.
- Members should construct a more advanced project each year.
- Completed Record Sheet must be turned in with your green folder.
- May not be shown as a model.
Remember the exhibit must be transported and moved to display area. You may want to consider how well your project holds/stays together. There are not a lot of guidelines for this project—which allows you to be creative!
