DEPARTMENT C

FFA FARM MECHANICS AND FIELD CROPS

 

RULES AND REGULATIONS

 

1) Articles exhibited must have been constructed by FFA members either as a part of

their farm mechanics instruction in vocational agriculture, or as a part of their super-

vised farming program.

2) Entries will be judged on the basis of workmanship and finish, design, strength, use-

fulness and suitability.

3) An article can be shown only once at the Delta Fair, but does not have to be con-

structed during the year it is exhibited.

4) All entries must be painted or properly treated in case of feeders. All articles must

be clean and in presentable condition even though they may have been used.

5) All entries must be the work of the exhibitor.

6) Non-perishable entries (shop entries) may be entered on Sunday from 1:00 p.m.- 4:00

p.m.  All entries will be accepted between 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. on the Monday before the Fair and must

remain in place until 9:00 p.m. Saturday.

7) Judging will be on Monday beginning at 6:00 p.m.

8) There will be no entry fee.

9) Judging will be on the point system, and point value will be determined by the judge

at time of judging. Maximum point value shall not exceed $1.00. The points assigned

to projects are based upon the amount of work involved, difficulty and cost of moving,

and the costs of materials. The Judge and Superintendent may adjust the points up or

down within a range of 50 percent when a project is unusual in size or difficulty and it

appears necessary in order to keep the points in balance.
