                                           State Fair Eligibility
                                      Participation Awards Program

Rules and Policies:

    1.      Program runs from May 16, 2009 to May 15, 2010.

    2.      Youth must acquire a minimum of 4 points to be eligible to show at state fair.

            If more than our assigned quota earn 4 eligibility points, then those with the most points get
            first opportunity to show at state fair. (e.g. If we have a quota of 24 animals, the top 24 point
            getters will get to take 1 animal each.)

            Our goal is to fill our state fair quota each year with active youth participants.

    3.      Each person is responsible for keeping track of his/her eligible activities for the year. They
            must be correctly recorded in the participation book. This booklet MUST be turned in with
            your state fair managerial form (if needed) by May 20, 2010 to be considered for state fair
            eligibility and other awards and/or prizes. Youth less than 12 years old must also turn in
            this book by May 20, 2010 to be considered for awards and/or prizes.

    4.      This program is designed to encourage education and participation in the wide variety of dairy
            activities available to the youth in Manitowoc County. It is an inclusive program based on
            participation in events, not on placings. Emphasis is on the individual, not the quality of the
            animal he/she shows.

    5.      Awards for the top 3 high point individuals in each category will be given at the Manitowoc
            County Fair. Divisions are as follows:
                                 Grades 3 & 4
                                 Grades 5 & 6
                                 Grades 7 & 8
                                 Grades 9 & 10
                                 Grades 11, 12 & above

    6.      All decisions of the Dairy Committee will be final.

    7.      Prior to submitting this book, the member and his/her parent or legal guardian shall sign below
            attesting to the accuracy of the entries.
