                                    Youth Protection Policies

University of Illinois Extension - Bureau County has adopted a number of procedures to help insure the safety of youth
involved in its programs.

Procedures Include:

         -Careful selection of adults who work with youth.
         -Barriers to harassment/abuse through policies on staff behavior.
         -Education on Youth Protection Policies to both youth and adults.

Barriers to Abuse

The following guidelines should be adhered to for the best interests of our youth and volunteers:

         -    Treat others in a courteous, respectful manner and demonstrate behaviors of a positive role model for youth.

         -    Recognize that verbal and/or physical abuse and/or neglect of youth is unacceptable in 4-H youth programs
              and report suspected abuse to the authorities.

         -    In order to protect individuals, avoid being alone with a single child.

         -    Respect privacy of youth members.

         -    Do not possess, consume or be under the influence of alcohol or illegal substances while responsible for
              youth in 4-H activities, nor allow 4-H youth participants under supervision to do so. All 4-H activities and
              events are to be alcohol and drug free.

         -    Tobacco use during 4-H sponsored events is prohibited.

         -    Although adults may direct children to proper procedures and rules, care should be exercised in the manner
              the message is delivered.

         -    During Extension activities, all contact with youth or adults by Extension staff or Extension volunteers
              should be done in the presence of others.

         -    All unusual circumstances and incidents must be immediately brought to the attention of Extension staff and
              an Incident Report form must be completed within 24 hours.

It is the adults' responsibility to insure the safety and best interests of all. Any signs of concern or injury should be
immediately reported on behalf of the youth.

 Parents are welcome at all Extension youth activities and are encouraged to become involved in the many opportunities
                                                        presented.



                                      Alcohol Statement
        No alcohol will be allowed at the 4-H Fair. This pe rtains to both adults and youth.
                Anyone possessing alcohol will be asked to leave the fair along with their entire family.

             Remaining participation at the 4-H Fair will be prohibited, and all exhibits will be removed.

 This wi ll be enforced. Failure to comply will result in police notification. We are also requesting the Fair Board
          to allow the City or County Police to patrol the fairgrounds at regular intervals during the night.

             Thank you for your assistance in making our youth events a safe and enjoyable place for everyone!

       judged.

19.   Judging will not begin in any department for which there is no assigned Superintendent.

Superintendents must check-in at the Judging Hall for review of rules and regulations 30 minutes before judging
begins.

1.      The Bureau County 4-H Show is not a professional show. This is a learning experience for the youth.
        Participants, volunteers, judges, superintendents, parents, and spectators are asked to keep this in mind.

2.      Superintendents must pick up nametags and Superintendent/Judge's packets from the Judging
        Hall Office.

3.      Livestock Superintendents are responsible for placing pen/stall tags.

4.      Superintendent has the responsibility for management of his/her department’s area of the grounds and should
        refer to members of Unit Council, Fair Review Committee and/or the Fair Organization & Development
        Committee in cases not covered by or applicable to fair book rules/procedures.

4.      Superintendents must check Ethics List for exhibitor completion of certification, health papers and
        livestock registrations for name and date of ownership. Health requirements for livestock coincide with
        Illinois State Fair.

5.      When rules are not clear in their application to a certain situation, Superintendents (with the approval of
        members of Unit Council and Fair Review Committee or the Fair Organization & Development Committee)
        shall bear ultimate and final responsibility for situations requiring interpretation of the rules. A minimum of 3
        committee members is required to rule on a decision.

6.      Superintendents with the assistance of the Extension office staff are the only individuals who may determine the
        eligibility of an exhibit/project under the rules. This is not the judge’s domain.

        Hall Office) for class eligibility.

8.      Substitute exhibitors must be Bureau County 4-H members.

9.      All exhibits will be judged and placed into three quality groups: Blue, Red and White. The Blue group of
        livestock exhibits will be placed in the order of their quality. Some "Superior" ribbons will be awarded to the
        most outstanding non-livestock projects. Best Junior Exhibitor ribbons can be awarded to an outstanding non-
        livestock project of 8 and 9 year olds which are denoted by an asterisk (*) on class listing. These are also
        denoted by the colored entry tag.

10.     Superintendents are responsible for checking the No Show Lists for their area. No Shows need to be indicated on
        the Judge’s Rating Sheets by marking a NS next to the exhibitor. Project tags should be marked with Blue, Red,
        White, and if exhibitor is to receive additional awards such as: Superior, Best Junior Exhibitor, State Fair
        Delegate, State Fair Alternate, to be eligible to exhibit at the State Fair.

11.     Each project, if worthy, will be eligible for only two ribbons, a blue ribbon and either a State Fair ribbon, an
        alternate ribbon, a superior ribbon, or a Best Jr. Exhibitor ribbon. Judges may give more than one superior or
        alternate ribbon in a class. Best Jr. Exhibitor ribbons may be awarded at the Judge's discretion. A single
        member may receive more than one State Fair ribbon in departments where they have more than one project if
        their projects are worthy of the awards. Any project not in compliance with the exact exhibit requirements
        listed in the current Fair Book will be marked down one ribbon grade.

12.     At the beginning of judging, Livestock Superintendents will announce that Showmanship classes will be held at
        the end of judging. Superintendents will encourage exiting exhibitors to return to watch older exhibitors' classes.

13.     Superintendents are free to solve scheduling conflicts as they see fit. Please be consistent within your
        department.
                                                                                                                       12


      4-H Fair Superintendent Summary of Rules and Responsibilities (continued)
14.      Discuss Judge's Summary with each judge.

15.      Discuss adherence to Ethics Statement whenever necessary.

16.      If a class was judged improperly, the Superintendent (with the approval of members of Unit Council, Fair
         Review Committee and the Fair Organization & Development Committee) may cause an entire class to be re-
         judged. A minimum of 3 committee members is required to rule on a decision. Individual projects will not be
         re-judged.

17.      Exhibitor/leader/parent may contest an entry within 15 minutes of the class judging.

18.      Mark the entry tags of trophy/award winners and State Fair delegates and alternates before returning project to
         club's table. Check to be sure the award/trophy forms have been completed in the binder before releasing
         projects.

19.      Return Superintendent's books to the Judging Hall Office after the conclusion of project judging.

20.      Superintendent is responsible for making sure their respective livestock area is cleaned and returned to pre-show
         conditions prior to releasing exhibits/exhibitors. Superintendent can appoint an adult volunteer to help with this
         responsibility.

21.      Except in an emergency situation, a 4-H volunteer is expected to consult with Extension staff before taking
         action that may result in the removal of youth from the 4-H Fair. This is in compliance with Illinois State 4-H
         Policy, Section 4(c).

22.     The Department Superintendent may make weather-related schedule changes if necessary. If Extension
staff, Unit Council members, and/or members of the Fair Organization and Development Committee or Fair
Review Committee are present on the fairgrounds, the superintendent should meet with at least 3 of these people
to discuss changes before they go into effect. If and when changes are made, the superintendent must inform all
participants in the affected classes and Extension staff within a reasonable time frame. In the case of a weather
emergency (tornado, fire, severe thunderstorm), the 4-H Fair Emergency Action Plan (pages 95-97) should be
followed immediately.
                                                                                                                        13
                     4-H Fair Judge Summary of Rules and Regulations
Judges must check-in at the Judging Hall for review of rules and regulations 30 minutes before judging begins.

1.      Please be sure that each exhibit judged receives a ribbon award that is recorded on the Judge’s &
        Superintendent’s Scoring sheets as well as putting a corresponding colored sticker on the exhibit’s entry
        tag.

2.      All exhibits will be judged and placed into three quality groups: Blue, Red and White. The Blue group of
        livestock exhibits will be placed in the order of their quality. Some "Superior" ribbons will be awarded to the
        most outstanding projects. Best Junior Exhibitor ribbons can be awarded to an outstanding project of 8 and 9
        year olds which are denoted by an asterisk (*) on class listing. These are also denoted by the colored entry tag.
        Judges may confer with Cloverbud exhibitors (if the exhibitor so chooses) but may only award
        Cloverbuds with participation ribbons. Cloverbuds are not eligible for Blue, Red, White, or other
        competitive awards.

3.      Each project, if worthy, will be eligible for only two ribbons, a blue ribbon and either a State Fair ribbon, an
        alternate ribbon, a superior ribbon, or a Best Jr. Exhibitor ribbon. Judges may give more than one superior or
        alternate ribbon in a class. Best Jr. Exhibitor ribbons may be awarded at the Judges' discretion.

4.      Any project not in compliance with the exact exhibit requirements listed in the current Fair Book will be
        marked down one ribbon grade.

5.      A single member may receive more than one State Fair ribbon in departments where they have more than one
        project if their projects are worthy of the awards.

6.      In departments where there are multiple judges, please work together to select State Fair delegate/alternate.

7.      Judges may not judge projects of their own children, grandchildren, or close relatives and friends.

8.      Judges are asked to remember that this is a learning experience, not an open show, and are requested to
        treat all exhibitors with respect, dignity and encouragement, regardless of the quality of their exhibit or
        animal. All exhibitors are to be congratulated on their efforts and encouraged to improve.

9.      Judges will not allow parents, exhibitors or Superintendents to influence the ranking of projects or the use of
        quality ribbons in any class.

10.     Superintendents, not judges, are responsible for determining the eligibility of any project to be judged. If
        the Superintendent determines that a project/exhibit qualifies for the department in which it is entered, the judge
        will judge it on an equal basis with the other entries in the class/department.

11.     Do not begin judging in a department for which there is no Superintendent. Judges must remain for
        15 minutes after judging concludes.

12.     Individual projects may not be re-judged, but an entire class may be re-judged at the discretion of the
        Superintendent (with the approval of members of Unit Council, Fair Review Committee and the Fair
        Organization & Development Committee). A minimum of 3 committee members is required to rule on a
        decision.

13.     Please read and obey rules in the Fair Book and Project Manuals (where applicable) so that judging
        remains consistent. Rules may change from year to year, so it is important to review the current year’s
        guidelines before judging begins.
                                                                                                                          14
                                         State Fair Guidelines
 All State Fair Jr. Livestock first time exhibitors of beef, sheep, swine, dairy, goats, horses, and poultry
 are require d to take an "Ethics" training via the web in order to be eligible to exhibit at the State Fair.
                 June 15 is the deadline for required attendance at animal ethics training.

  It is the responsibility of the State Fair Delegates/Alternates to register themselves for the State Fair.
            The Extension office does not call delegates or alternates to remind them about registration.

State Fair Delegate Sign up will be held at the Extension Office on Tuesday, July 26, from 9:00a.m. –
4:30 p.m. If a delegate is not registered by 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, July 28, alternates will be allowed to
register in their place.

State Fair Alternate Sign up will be held at the Extension Office on Thursday, July 28, from 9:00a.m. –
4:30 p.m. If the delegates choose not to attend the state fair, alternates may register in their place in
their ranked order. Beginning at 1:00 p.m. on July 28, any alternate may register for the state fair if
there is an opening in the exhibit class in which they were chosen.

Exhibiting in the 4-H Exhibit Division at the Illinois State Fair is a privilege and an honor. It is the responsibility
of the exhibitor to follow the General Rules of this division and the exhibit requirements for the specific class
entered.

Due to building deterioration, we will no longer be allowed to house judging and exhibits in the Jr. Home
Economics - Dorm Building. Many exhibits will be moved to different locations throughout the fairgrounds. Local
Extension Offices will receive information on final locations by early summer, 2011.

                                               General Rules for this Division
    Ø   Any boy or girl in Illinois, who is enrolled as a 4-H member and is at least 10 years old as of September 1, 2010
        may participate in 4-H classes and activities, providing the exhibitor meets the eligibility rules for participation.
        Parents and leaders should be aware of conditions on the Fairgrounds and in the Junior Department Dormitories
        and make provisions for the adequate care and supervision of exhibitors.

    Ø   Exhibitors must be enrolled in the project or have participated in the activity in which they are exhibiting during
        the current year. Due to the nature of the conference judging process, exhibitors must be present with the
        exhibit that they have made/produced for judging. Exhibits are required to be judged on the assigned
        county day for judging (except in the case of the exhibit classes which are only judged on one day.) . Scheduling
        adjustments for religious reasons may be requested by contacting Debra Stocker at the State 4-H office in writing
        by August 1, 2011 (dstocker@illinois.edu).

    Ø   All entries must be products of the current 4-H year (September 1, 2010 - August 31, 2011). The same
        product or speech that is selected at the county level must be the one exhibited at the State Fair, adjusted to State
        Fair class requirements. The exceptions include exhibits in the areas of Food & Nutrition (must be the same
        recipe), Crops (plant exhibits), Floriculture, and Vegetable Market Baskets/Plates. Modifications can be made to
        the original county exhibit to 1) meet State Fair class requirements, or 2) incorporate suggested improvements
        made by the local judge. Determination of exhibit eligibility rests solely with the University of Illinois Extension
        Assistant Dean and Director, 4-H and designated persons.

    Ø   Counties will make all entries in this division via computer upload. Instructions for this process will be sent to
        the counties by early July. Uploads should be completed by August 1, 2011. Counties needing permission for
        late entries after August 1 should contact Debra Stocker at the State 4-H Office in writing by July 15, 2011.

    Ø   Each county may make the number of entries allowed in each area as stated. If a county’s community club
        enrollment exceeds 500 members, up to twelve additional exhibits/exhibitors may be selected for state fair.
        These additional exhibits may be entered in any class/classes of the county’s choosing. Current enrollment
        figures should be used to determine entry numbers. Counties may obtain this information locally using the 4-
        H DMS. Multi-county Extension units have the option of combining enrollments from all counties within the
        unit to determine a total number of entries, using the quota systems. This procedure, if used, must be used for
        ALL State Fair class entries from that multi-county unit.
                                                                                                                     15
                            State Fair Guidelines (continued)
Ø   If a 4-H member needs a reasonable accommodation to participate in the Junior Department, please contact the
    State 4-H Office at 217/333-0910 by August 1, 2011. For counties who have late entry permission (#4), contact
    must be made as soon as the 4-H member’s participation is confirmed on the county level.

Ø   An individual 4-H'er may enter ONLY ONE exhibit class in the 4-H Exhibit Division. This includes
    exhibitors in Fashion Revue, Public Presentations, Club/Group exhibits in Public Adventures and Intercultural,
    and any exhibit classes only offered on one day. Exhibitors will need to check in at specific times on their
    county’s assigned date. Exhibits are required to be judged on the assigned county day for judging. Exact
    check-in times will be provided to local Extension offices by mid-July. Presentation and conference judging
    times will be assigned at check-in. Exhibitors not reporting at their designated time will forfeit their time and
    may be placed at the end of the day’s schedule. General 4-H exhibitors also wishing to show in Jr. Livestock
    classes should realize that judging conflicts may exist and the member will need to make a decision on their
    priorities. The General 4-H Show will try to accommodate judging times; however judges will not be asked to
    stay longer than necessary if an exhibitor is not present during the assigned judging times. If an exhibitor misses
    the class judging entirely, a “No Show” will be registered for the exhibit and ribbons and premiums will not be
    awarded. NOTE: Some judging will take place in the Exposition Building; exhibitors should plan to allow
    extra time to arrive at this location. Check-in and judging times for the Exposition Building will vary from
    the other locations.

Ø   Exhibits illustrating inappropriate subject matter and/or graphics are not acceptable. The Superintendents reserve
    the right to not display exhibits deemed inappropriate for youth audiences. Items deemed potentially dangerous
    to fair-goers may be removed from the ex   hibit.

Ø   All conference-judged exhibits must be identified with an official entry tag. This entry tag is to be completely
    filled out and securely attached to the exhibit. Conference-judged projects must remain on display until
    12:00 p.m. if judged in the morning or whenever judging is completed, whichever is later and 4:00 p.m. if
    judged in the afternoon or whenever judging is completed, whichever is later, in order to receive a
    premium award. (Release times for Exposition Building exhibits are 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. or whenever
    judging is completed, whichever is later.)

Ø   CLOVER CHALLENGE exhibit classes are included in many of the General 4-H Sections. These classes are
    ONLY for 15-18 year olds who are enrolled in Clover Challenge projects in that specific exhibit project area.
    Clover Challenge projects are to be “above and beyond” what the 4-H project books cover. Exhibit a display
    illustrating the Clover Challenge area that you explored. This could include anything NOT covered in the project
    book, including but not limited to career exploration or an in-depth study of a specific topic in that project’s
    subject matter. The completed Illinois 4-H Clover Challenge Agreement must be presented with the exhibit.
    The agreement can be found at: http://web.extension.illinois.edu/state4h/projects/.

Ø   The Illinois State Fair, State 4-H Office, and local University of Illinois Extension personnel or their
    assigned agents do not assume liability for loss, theft, or damage to any exhibit.

Ø   Judges are permitted to award Superior ribbons at their discretion to a maximum number of exhibitors per class.
    Judges take into account the display and information provided during the interview in determining Superior
    ribbon awards. Exhibitors who do not follow the exhibit class guidelines and requirements are ineligible to
    receive a Superior ribbon. The judge’s decision is final unless it has been determined that an exhibitor has
    not followed the guidelines or rules for that exhibit class.

Ø   Display space is limited. Table displays are limited to 2’ wide x 15” deep unless otherwise stated in the class
    listings for that project. (Standard science display boards fit into this size limitation.) This pertains to exhibits
    to be placed on a table only; floor exhibits are not limited unless indicated in a specific project section (i.e.
    Woodworking, Interior Design, and Visual Arts). The maximum poster size for hanging is 22” x 30”, unless
    otherwise stated in the class listings for that project. Exhibits that stand over 4’ tall will be placed on the
    floor. Use of page protectors is recommended for binder exhibits. Binder exhibits will NOT be labeled “Do
    Not Touch.”
                                                                                                                        16
                              State Fair Guidelines (continued)
    Ø                                         ed
        Limited equipment will be provid for certain exhibits. For Public Presentations, the following items will be
        available, if requested in advance: LCD projector, podium, projector screen, demonstration table, and extension
        cord. Requested items should be noted on 4-HDMS electronic entry notes. Exhibitors must furnish any
        additional equipment they feel is necessary to properly critique their exhibit (i.e. computer). Exhibitors should be
        aware that electrical outlets are not always located near judging locations and should take that into consideration
        when planning exhibits.

                                                      PREMIUMS
GENERAL 4-H EXHIBITS FOR INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS
Conference-judged exhibitors will receive a premium and an Award of Excellence ribbon. Conference-judged exhibits
must remain on display until the posted release time or whenever judging is completed, whichever is later. Action-
oriented exhibitors will receive a premium and an Award of Excellence. The top 5% of each action-oriented class will
receive special recognition, but no additional premium. "Team" entries are allowed only in specified action-oriented
classes. Size of a “team” is defined in those specified classes – ALL of which must meet the age requirement for 4-H
state fair exhibitors. Each member of a team will receive a ribbon and premium check. Both premiu m-eligible members
must be registered for the class via the 4-HDMS process. Premium amounts will be determined by using an “x” factor
after the number of actual exhibits has been confirmed. (*NOTE: The Department of Agriculture shall use its best efforts
to secure sufficient appropriations to fund premiums. In any year for which the General Assembly of the State of Illinois
fails to make an appropriation sufficient to pay such premiums, premium amounts may not be accurately reflected in the
Junior Department Premium Book.)

CLUB EXHIBITS
Clubs may wish to do a display in one of two project exhibit areas: Intercultural or Public Adventures. The displays must
remain in place from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. or 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. on the assigned judging day. These exhibits will be
placed and judged on the Mezzanine Level of the Exposition Building. The display must be manned by 3 or more club
exhibitors of 4-H age (8 and older) at the time of the judge’s critique. These members must not be exhibiting in
another individual exhibit class and at least one of the members must meet the 10-year-old and above age
requirement. Only club members present for judging who participate in the actual critique and the presentation
are eligible for ribbons and premiums. Premiums and ribbons will only be awarded to those members who meet the
State Fair age requirement. Premium   -eligible members must be registered for the class via the 4-HDMS process.
Premium amounts will be determined by using an “x” factor after the number of actual exhibits has been confirmed.
(*NOTE: The Department of Agriculture shall use its best efforts to secure sufficient appropriations to fund premiums. In
any year for which the General Assembly of the State of Illinois fails to make an appropriation sufficient to pay such
premiums, premium amounts may not be accurately reflected in the Junior Department Premium Book.) Clubs preparing
an exhibit in any area other than the two classes listed will not be eligible for a Superior ribbon and premiums/ribbons
will not be awarded.

WARNING: Under the equine activity act, each participant who engages in an equine activity
     expressly assumes the risks of engaging in and legal responsibility for injury, loss, or

Rules & Regulations:
Please note: These rules also apply during times when classes are not being judged.

The Bureau County 4-H Show is not a professional show. This is a learning experience for the youth.
Participants, volunteers, judges, superintendents, parents, and spectators are asked to keep this in mind.

1.   4-H'er will be paid for only ten premium classes, but may enter as many premium classes as their age division allows.
     Classes preceded by a ¦ are premium paying classes. Horsemanship and Showmanship classes may be entered on
     show day, entries close at the start of the previous class. There is no sign-up for the fun classes.

2.   Guidelines for Junior Horse Shows (http://web.aces.uiuc.edu/vista/pdf_pubs/HORSGUID.PDF) and the following
     rules govern the show. Bureau County 4-H is not a member of the USA Equestrian or the American Quarter Horse
     Association; these organizations’ rulebooks are used as guidelines only in cases not covered by 4-H rules. 4-Hers and
     their families are encouraged to familiarize themselves with these rules prior to the show. Printed copies are
     available at the Extension office.

3.   It is the 4-Her's responsibility to familiarize himself/herself with specific class requirements concerning attire, tack
     and class routine. 4-Hers who do not comply with specific class requirements for attire, tack, and class routine will
     be marked down one ribbon grade – see general rules.

4.   In compliance with Illinois State 4-H Policy, Section 4(c), except in an emergency, volunteers are expected to consult
     with Extension Unit staff before taking action that would lead to youth being excused from an activity. See general
     rules.

5.   Age as of September 1 of previous year will be used to determine 4-Her's age.

6.   By May 1 of this year, copies of ownership and/or lease papers, two updated photos (one of each side) of the
     horse/pony, and Permission to Participate forms must be on file at the Extension office. Partnerships are
     allowed at county level between no more than two family members, and must be listed as joint owners/lessees.
     4-Hers are responsible for the care of each project animal. Two exhibitors may not exhibit the same horse in the
     same class – they must be in different age divisions.

7. Stall assignments will be posted on Thursday. Special accommodations for stall assignments must be presented in
    writing to the Extension office at least 3 weeks prior to the show. Any trading or switching of stalls must be cleared
    by the head superintendent. 4-Hers may begin readying their stalls on Thursday, but no horses may be placed in
    stalls prior to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, except with prior approval of the head superintendent. In an emergency situation
    during overnight hours, horses may be temporarily moved to avoid injuries to a horse and/or person – the head
    superintendent must be notified of such actions at the earliest possible convenience.

8.   Each 4-Her is allowed to show a maximum of two horses/ponies during the weekend, but only one horse/pony per
     class. A third horse/pony may be shown in the weanlings and yearlings halter class only. Separate exhibitor numbers
     must be used for each horse/exhibitor combination. No stallions may be shown. This is a safety issue.
9.   All exhibitors must be properly attired for all classes except for fun classes that follow the speed events. NO
     BASEBALL CAPS, TENNIS SHOES OR T-SHIRTS ALLOWED. English attire does not require a coat. Chaps are
     optional. No loose or hanging items may be tied to saddles. 4-Hers must enter the ring ready to ride – additional
     equipment may not be given to the 4-Her once he/she has entered the ring.
                                                                                                                      34
    Horse and Pony Show Rules and Regulations                             (continued)

10. PARENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN CHILDREN. The Extension staff and Bureau County
    Fair Board are NOT responsible for any accidents or lost items. Children should not be left at the fairgrounds
    unattended or without supervision. 4-H Club Leaders are not responsible for providing supervision unless
    arrangements have been pre-arranged with the leader. This includes 4-H members staying overnight with
    their livestock. See General Rules.

11. Horses/ponies may be ridden only in the arena ring and to and from the barn or practice area designated by the head
    superintendent; see general rules. NO ADULTS to ride, as this is the 4       -Her's project. Adult supervision is
    encouraged. No riding or exercising your horse/pony after dark. The only person who may ride a horse is the 4-Her
    who has registered to exhibit it. Only 4-Hers, 4-H leaders, and the 4-Hers family members should take an active
    involvement in getting the horse ready for the show, unless others have received prior approval from the
    superintendent.

12. For safety reasons, approved protective head gear, with safety harness (fastened and buckled), is required BY
    ALL RIDERS WHENEVER MOUNTED. Helmets must meet ASTM/SEI standards. This applies to all riding
    classes at the Horse and Pony Show, and includes in the barns, practicing for events, and anywhere else on the
    Fair Grounds. No exhibitor shall be penalized for wearing protective head gear in any class at the show. A
    limited number of helmets will be available on a loan basis from the secretary’s booth and/or horse
    department superintendents.

13. High point awards on horse/rider combination for junior, intermediate, and senior age divisions will be awarded for
    Performance. High point awards on horse/rider combination for junior, intermediate and senior age divisions will be
    awarded for Gaming.

14. Previous winners of Novice Walk-Trot Pleasure and Novice Pleasure classes may not compete in Novice classes
    again.

15. For trail classes, an exhibitor shall have a maximum of 3 attempts at each obstacle. If the horse and rider are unable
    to complete the obstacle within 3 attempts, they must move on to the next obstacle.

16. For speed events, the rider must perform a courtesy circle upon entering the ring before beginning the event to prove
    the horse is under control. Failure to perform a courtesy circle will result in a “No time” fo r that class.

17. If a horse poses a danger to itself, another horse, or any person, the head superintendent has the authority to take
     actions as necessary to maintain the safety of the show area.

18. The judge may not be approached by an exhibitor, parent/guardian, or leader until after the final class.

19. Any protests must be in writing and signed by the exhibitor, parent/guardian, or leader within 15 minutes of the
    contested class being judged and given to the head Superintendent.

20. The head Superintendent's decisions are final (with the approval of members of Unit Council, Fair Review
    Committee and the Fair Organization & Development Committee). A minimum of 3 committee members is required
    to rule on a decision.

21. NO DOGS ALLOWED. See General Rules.

Artwork designed to be hung or placed on a shelf is limited to a size of 30” high x 30” wide x 12” deep. Artwork
meant to be displayed on the floor must fit in the exhibitor’s club booth. Exhibitors should notify the Extension
office in advance if their exhibit will require more than 3’ x 3’ of floor space.

Rules & Regulations (please follow these general rules as well as the guidelines for the exhibit class entered):

1.   Articles exhibited are to be made by the exhibitor who is a participant in the Visual Arts project. Articles must have
     been made during the current 4-H year. Exhibitors are encouraged to date the project when it is made. Artwork
     that is meant to be displayed on the floor or ground is restricted to 3' width x 3' length; no height restriction is
     given.
                                                                                                                           60

State Fair - All classes marked with asterisk (*) are eligible.


Visual Arts (continued)
2.    Articles exhibited should be from an original design created by the exhibitor. Copyrighted or trademarked
      designs can not be sent to the state fair. Articles done using patterns or pictures from magazines as starting points for
      designs ARE NOT acceptable for state fair entry. Kits and preformed molds are not considered original (and are
      not eligible for State Fair). Team or school logos are not original. Combining parts of different patterns 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. (Exception: Heritage Arts items may follow a pattern, but Heritage Arts
      items created from kits are not State Fair eligible.)

3.    Design Source - IF a photo, sketch, or other idea source was used, bring it with you to the judge. Be prepared to
      explain how and where you got the idea for this project. Photos used as a source should be taken by the artist.

4.    All items must be properly prepared for exhibit. Items which are intended to be hung must be prepared for hanging.
      The hanging device must be sturdy enough to support the weight of the object. Drawings and paintings should be
      matted and framed, preferably under glass. (Exceptions: Oil and acrylic paintings do not require glass and are not
      required to be matted.) Water color, chalk, pen & ink, etc. do require glass, acrylic, or some protective covering.
      There is no specific requirement for type of mat. Page 43 of the member's manual gives basic directions for a mat,
      but purchased, pre-cut mats (which are available at craft and discount stores) are acceptable.

               University of Illinois Extension - Bureau County
                      4-H Fair Risk Management Plan
                                        Insurance and General Liability
All 4-H volunteers leaders who are enrolled in the 4-H program have general liability coverage through University of
Illinois. This coverage is provided when they are conducting or being involved in a 4-H activity that extends the
educational service of the Extension service to the 4-H clientele. Volunteers also need to carry liability and medical
coverage as part of their auto insurance, to be used in instances where they are hauling riders, equipment, or animals in
their own private vehicles.

University of Illinois Extension purchases liability coverage for horse show activities, which include jumping and
gaming. This insurance protects these individuals from claims made against them because of their activities on our behalf.
So if a 4-Her is injured and makes a negligence claim against the 4-H leader or group of 4-H volunteers, the policy will
respond.

                                              Risk Reduction Steps
General Operations
A grounds safety check will be done by Extension staff to make sure facilities are ready to receive participants and
animals.

Extension staff will notify the police and fire departments of the 4-H activities planned.

All pertinent 4-H Fair forms will be easily accessible at the secretary’s building.

All animals will be unloaded in designated areas. 4-H members, parents, and leaders will make sure paths are clear of
public traffic when unloading.

Risk to Personnel
Extension staff, 4-H fair judges, and superintendents will be trained, prior to the fair, on the following issues:
    - Liability issues               - Risk management plan - Handling of grievances
    - Animal rights issues - Emergency action plans - Insurance issues

All judges, superintendents, and organizational leaders will read and be familiar with the Bureau County 4-H Fair Risk
Management Plan. A copy of the plan is in the judges/superintendents folders.

All judges and superintendents will be asked to carefully observe the skills of members in handling their equipment and
animals around other 4-H members and the public. If the safety of the 4-H member, the animal, or the public is in danger,
the superintendent has the right to take preventive action.

All judges, superintendents, and 4-H volunteers will be asked to report any suspicions they have regarding child abuse,
drug or alcohol abuse, theft, or any other inappropriate behavior to Extension staff.

Risk to Participants
4-H members will abide by the 4-H Behavior Guidelines for participation at 4-H events. Members not abiding by these
rules will be subject to provisions outlined in the guidelines. (These guidelines are provided to new members and can be
obtained through 4-H club leaders or the Extension office.)

4-H exhibitors will be told where and whom to go to regarding first aid treatment for participants. A first aid kit is
available at the secretary’s building. Extension staff will provide information for vet care services if needed.

4-H exhibitors will be informed of emergency action procedures and evacuation plans used regarding major accidents or
injury, missing persons, and tornadoes or severe weather.

4-H horse members will be told that “kicking” horses must wear a red ribbon in their tail.
                                                                                                                           91

4-H members will be informed as is appropriate at evening activities, to move about the fairgrounds in groups of 2 or 3,
as a safety precaution.

4-H members will be informed to keep obstacles out of the aisle, make sure animals are securely tied or in their pen, and
keep grooming chutes and stands out of the way to facilitate public traffic flow.

4-H members will be encouraged to work with their own animal with minimal assistance from their parents for safety and
control of the animal. Giving control of the animal to a person not familiar with that species should be limited to reduce
the risk of having animals out of control.

Risk to Public
Signs reading “Please Use Caution – High Level of Animal Activity” will be posted in entrances to barns and show paths.

Signs reading “Horse and Riders Only” will be posted at paddock gates, warm up arena, and wash racks.

Signs reading “Don’t Feed the Animals” will be posted in each barn.

Signs reading “Please Don’t Stick Fingers or Other Objects in Cages” will be posted in the rabbit and poultry buildings.

Signs reading “Not Responsible for Accidents” will be posted throughout the fairgrounds.


Risk to Property/Building/Equipment
Any act of vandalism or damage to property, buildings, or equipment, caused by 4-H participants or animals, will be
reported to Extension staff.

Death, illness, or injury of an animal is the liability of the owner.

Stolen equipment or exhibits is a risk taken by the 4-H exhibitor. Exhibitors are reminded to label all personal equipment,
keep it in a locked box when not in use, and keep track of it if lent out. Monitors are working in the exhibit buildings, but
this is not a guarantee of safety of items.


                                              Emergency Action Plan
Major Accident or Injury

    3.   Extension staff or other designate will remain with the injured person and administer first aid as needed and
         qualified to do so. A first aid kit is located in the secretary’s building.

                                                                                                                           92
   5.   Announcements using a designated code word regarding a missing person will be announced at each event in
        progress.

   6.   Extension staff, 4-H volunteer or other designate will notify parents/guardians of missing person.

   7.   Extension staff or designated others will direct a search of the fairgrounds. The search will begin where the
        missing person was last seen.

   8.   If Extension staff is not present due to the occurrence happening during off hours of fair operations, they will be
        contacted by 4-H volunteers and briefed of the situation.

Major Fire
   1.   All incidents of fire will be reported to the secretary’s building and Extension staff.

   2.   Extension staff, 4-H volunteer, or other designate will notify the fire department: 911.

   3.   Extension staff and 4-H volunteers will see that the building or area is evacuated and all participants are gathered
        in the specified area – southeast field of the fairground property, as noted on signs posted on each building.

Tornado Warning or Severe Weather
   1.   Extension staff and 4-H volunteers will be notified of tornado, if sirens have not been sounded.

   2.   Extension staff, 4-H volunteers, or other designates will evacuate all persons to the concrete restroom building
        located west of the Poultry Barn and/or the concrete portion of the Beef Sale Barn and take an initial head count,
        if possible.

   3.   Extension staff, 4-H volunteers, or other designate will decide when it is safe to return to other activities.
