GENERAL REGULATIONS

Items are to be picked up Saturday, 9:00-10:00 p.m. in the Agri Building

1 - Entries will be accepted on the Monday before the Fair, 3:00-5:00 p.m. in the Agri Building.

2 - All exhibits must be properly identified and labeled with tags furnished by the County Extension Office.

3 - Entries in the department are limited to boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 18 working under the supervision of the University of Missouri Extension and whose enrollment is on file in the Dunklin, Pemiscot, New Madrid, Stoddard or Mississippi County Extension Office.

4 - Each exhibit shall be owned or made by the exhibitor and represent work accomplished with a 4-H project.  Items made by the 4-H members should reflect the skills they have learned in their 4-H project, the needs and interest of the 4-H'er, and quality workmanship.  Use the 4-H project literature and the Clover for exhibit ideas and criteria.

5 - Exhibitors will be limited to two entries in a class.  Where special rules indicate a different limitation, it will take precedence over this rule, as in the Horticulture and Visual Arts Classes.

6 - Every precaution will be taken to protect exhibits, but neither the Delta Fair Association nor 4-H Club Department will be responsible for loss or damage.

7 - All judging will be done on the basis of the group system which includes blue, red, and white ribbon groups. Premium money offered in this department will be divided on the basis of 3-2-1; that is, an exhibit placing in the blue ribbon group will receive three times the amount received by an exhibit placing in the white ribbon group; likewise, an exhibit in the same class placing in the red ribbon group will receive twice that given to a white ribbon exhibit in the same class.

8 - The prize money will be divided according to a number of winners in the show.  Blue ribbons receive three (3) points, Red ribbons receive two (2) points, and White ribbons receive (1) point. The total points awarded will be divided into the total money to determine the value of a point, which shall not be less than 30 cents per point.

9 - In all classes, the judges' decision will be final.

10 - Articles made in any 4-H Club project listed in the Clover will be accepted for exhibit even though they are not listed in this catalog.
