PURPOSE OF THE 4-H FAIR - 4-H fairs are held nationally to allow youth the opportunity to exhibit a product that
has resulted from an in-depth yearlong study in an area of interest to them. 4-H’ers should participate in the fair
with pride. They have worked hard to get there. They enter the fair to receive feedback regarding the work they
have done and to gather ideas for what they can do differently or expand upon in their project areas in future years.

JUDGING - Conference judging is the main judging format used. During conference judging, judges visit with
4-H’ers about the product being displayed and the project completed to determine whether or not learning has
taken place. Conference judging is most prevalent in the General Project and Clothing Shows, but is also an
important tool for animal judges during showmanship classes.

    4-H’ers participating in the fair will receive a ribbon for each entry. Judges will assign ribbons based on the
amount of learning they believe has taken place, the quality of the product displayed, and the adherence of the
product to the specific class description. The number one reason that 4-H’ers are marked down during judging is
because they fail to follow the rules and meet class guidelines.

     Ribbons assigned will be blue, red, or white, and should not be confused with letter grades. Blue ratings will be
assigned when the exhibit meets class guidelines, the product being shown is of high quality, and the 4-H’er proves
that he/she has learned much in the process of completing the project. White ribbons are assigned when products
clearly do not meet class guidelines, products are of poor quality, and 4-H’ers appear to have learned nothing in
completing the project. Red ribbons are given for projects falling in between the two extremes. There is no limit on
the number of ribbons of any color that can be given. Other ribbons/awards will be given to 4-H’ers at the
discretion of the judges and departmental committees. Colors and codes follow:

       Purple or Purple Gingham/White Rosettes - Grand Champion
       Pink or Pink Gingham/White Rosettes – Reserve Grand Champion
       Purple/White Rosette - Champion
       Pink/White Rosettes - Reserve Champion
       Turquoise/White Rosettes - Honorable Mention
       Small Blue Rosettes - Top Blue (Top of Class - Animal Shows)
       Red/White/Blue Ribbon- Top of Class (Exhibit Building)
       Hot Green Rosettes - Selected For State
       Hot Pink Rosettes - Selected As State Alternate
       Green Ribbons - Cloverbud Participation



                                                          2
Each year our county selects a number of 4-H General Project exhibits to represent Ogle County at the Illinois
State Fair. Classes from which state fair delegates may be selected are marked with asterisks (*). Varying numbers
of individuals may be selected from various divisions. Should any of the individuals selected for state competition in
a particular division decline that opportunity, alternates in appropriate classes may be selected instead. Delegates
and alternates are only selected when judges feel that the projects exhibited are of high enough quality to compete
at the state level. Refer to General Rule #9 for more details on State Fair selections.

    organization. Club members will not know when the inspection will take place or who the judges will be.
    Conduct of members is an important factor as is the willingness of a club to help when there are tasks to be
    done. This will be observed at all times. All beef, sheep, swine, dairy, and goat exhibits will be eligible, as long
    as at least two youth from a particular club have exhibits in two or more of these animal areas.

    to return to the owner’s premises.
    Any livestock infected with scabies, mange, active lesions of ringworm, soremouth, or multiple warts which
         are easily visible without close examination shall not be permitted to exhibit and are subject to quarantine
         or removal from the fairgrounds.
    Sheep and goats with caseous lymphadenitis as evidenced by draining abscesses shall not be exhibited
         and are subject to immediate quarantine or removal from the fairgrounds.
8. Illinois Department of Agriculture personnel may collect blood, tissue, milk or urine samples from any animal

                                                       SWINE
Identification   Letter from the USDA dated February 10, 2009
                 Subject: Identification Requirements for Official Psuedorabies (PRV) and Brucellosis

                 According to the 2010 Illinois Exhibition Health Requirements for Illinois State Fair, DeQuoin State
                 Fair, and county fairs, swine need to be tested for PRV. Swine for all ages shall be negative to an
                 official test for PRV conducted within 90 days prior to exhibition; or swine shall originate
                 immediately and directly from a qualified PRV negative herd. Barrows and females in        market
                 classes must meet the same requirements as breeding swine.

                 Because PRV and Brucellosis are official state/federal cooperative disease programs, all testing for
                 these diseases is considered official testing. Therefore, the animals tested and accompanying
                 documents should include this official identification. Any interstate movements subsequent to
                 exhibition are subject to requirements for official identification. Official identification is required for
                 all interstate movement.

                 Ear notching is only appropriate as official identification for swine when the ear notching has been
                 recorded in the book of record of a purebred registry association. The use of ear notches is not
                 acceptable as official identification for crossbred swine.

                 Swine shall be identified by an official ear tag, tattoo or recognized breed ear notch. Ear notch
                 identification is acceptable for barrows, crossbred gilts, and breeding swine. (Note: Ear notch
                 identification of crossbred swine does not satisfy USDA identification requirements for brucellosis
                 and pseudorabies testing.)

                 Veterinarians blood testing swine for the Ogle County Fair should use official ear tags for crossbred
                 swine regardless of ear notches. Swine health papers should include official ear tag numbers and
                 ear notch identification plus the results of all blood test.

Illinois Swine Brucellosis testing is not required for Illinois swine.
               Swine WILL require CVI’s.
               All exhibition swine are required to be tested for pseudorabies as described below
               Swine of all ages shall be negative to an official test for pseudorabies conducted within ninety (90)
               days prior to exhibition; or swine shall originate immediately and directly from a qualified
               pseudorabies negative herd.

                 Barrows and females in market classes must meet the same requirements as breeding swine.

                 Swine from pseudorabies-quarantined herds will not be allowed to exhibit.

                 Your Ogle County 4-H Fair Veterinarian recommends obtaining necessary testing and
                 papers a minimum of three weeks prior to the fair to insure that you will have enough time.

Identification   Individual identification of each animal shall be by an ear tattoo or official metal or plastic tag. A
                 microchip ID is acceptable if the owner provides the reader.

                 Ear tattoos may be used when a registration certificate, listing the tattoo number, accompanies the
                 animal.

                 When using ear tags, the tag must indicate the premises ID and state of origin. The tag number
                 must be assigned by a state or APHIS representative and recorded in the Scrapie Record
                 Database.

                 Tags are available from USDA, at no charge, by calling 1-866-USDA-TAG. A list of approved tag
                 companies is maintained on the APHIS Scrapie Web page: www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/scrapie

                 Ears should be used for tattooing when possible. If there is no space in the ear, the flank or tail
                 fold may be used.

Illinois Goats Goats originating from a herd that has previously been classified as either an infected or source
               herd can be exhibited upon the completion of an approved herd plan.

                 For any animal born after 1/1/02, the CVI must include the flock of birth and the flock of origin, if
                 different.

               flock can be exhibited in Illinois upon the completion of an approved flock plan.
               For any animal born after 1/1/02, the CVI must include the flock of birth and the flock of origin, if
               different.

        4-H MEMBER'S NAME

        Media: HERITAGE ARTS
        Technique: COUNTED CROSS STITCH

        I got the idea for this project from:
        I SAW THE COMPLETED PROJECT AT A FRIEND'S
        HOUSE AND WANTED TO MAKE ONE FOR MYSELF.
        SO I BOUGHT THE KIT.

        What I did special for this project:
        I USED 3 STRANDS OF THREAD INSTEAD OF THE 2
        THE KIT CALLED FOR. I ALSO CHANGED THE COLOR
        OF THE BALLOONS TO PURPLE TO MATCH MY ROOM.


6.   Media means: types of materials used in creating art work. 1-CHALK, 2-CLAY 3-CRAYON 4-COMPUTER

     PAINTING 13-PAPER 14-PEN 15-PENCIL 16-PLASTIC 17-3D DESIGN/MIXED MEDIA 18-WOOD
7. Technique means: How exhibit is made (i.e.: latch hook, stitchery, molding, acrylic paint, colored pencil, chalk).
8. Members may enter only one project per class.
9. Classification of Visual Arts projects can be confusing. If you have questions about whether your exhibit is
     properly enrolled, please consult the Visual Arts Area Superintendent at the time of check-in. No
     reclassification of visual arts projects will be allowed after check-in.
10. It is recommended that you bring only one exhibit in a media area of same technique. (Ex: Don’t bring both an
     original cross stitch and a cross stitch kit.)
11. Stepping stones, painted rocks, duct tape items, and scrapbooks are not acceptable in any Visual Arts exhibit
     class.
12. All items must be properly prepared for exhibit. Items which are intended to be hung must be prepared for
     hanging with wire. The hanging device must be sturdy enough to support the weight of the object. Drawings
     and paintings must be matted and framed under glass.
     Oil and acrylic paintings do not require glass and are not required to be matted.
     Water color, chalk, pen & ink, computer-generated art, etc. DO require glass, acrylic, or some protective
         covering.
There is no specific requirement for type of mat. Page 34 of the member's manual gives basic directions for a mat,
but purchased, pre-cut mats are acceptable.

        Classes II01 to II12 are for ORIGINAL WORK. This is any project made without the use of
        commercial/store purchased pattern or design. The 4-H’er has developed, created & implemented the
        project. Articles in this category must be an original design created by the exhibitor. Copyrighted or
        trademarked designs are not acceptable in this division. Combining parts of different patterns (pictures,
        photographs, images from the internet or a magazine) with the member’s own ideas can result in an
        original design, but simply changing the color, pattern and/or size of a pattern does NOT make the design
        original. If a photo, sketch, or other idea source was used, submit it with your entry, firmly attached
        to your exhibit. Be prepared to explain how and where you got the idea for this project. Photos
        used as a source must be taken by the artist. MOST ORIGINAL CLASSES ARE STATE FAIR
        ELIGIBLE CLASSES. Stepping stones, painted rocks, and scrapbooks are not acceptable in any Visual
        Arts exhibit class.

        Classes II13 to II21 are for NON-ORIGINAL WORK. The artist may enter any article that is made from the
        use of a pattern, picture that was not taken by the artist, a book or a kit. A kit is defined as pre-packaged,
        formed, stamped, printed or numbered canvas, or precut materials to be used in a completed craft. THESE
        ARE INELIGIBLE FOR STATE FAIR. Several non-original items may qualify for State Fair through the
        Heritage Arts Class. Register for classes at your discretion.
