I'm gonna start off by tellin' you rookies a little bit about pig racing!" If you've never been to a pig race, you're in for a real treat! Swifty and his friends don't do it for the money, what they really want is that Oreo cookie, waiting on a silver platter at the finish line!

Guide for Specimen Display Exhibitors 1. New exhibitors are encouraged and will be given special guidance in registering and exhibiting. 2. Containers will be furnished for the Roses and Specimen exhibits. 3. Where possible, long uniform stems are best in scale. 4. Foliage, healthy and free of injury, should be left on. Remove foliage below the water line. 5. Blooms should be as uniform in size as possible and true to type. 6. Be sure to have the correct number of blooms or stems required - no more or no less. Extra flowers may be brought along in case a specimen is damaged. 7. Blooms should be near or “at peak”, never over-bloomed for best exhibit, cut off dead blossoms and seed heads. 8. All Dahlia’s and Zinnia’s should be “disbudded,” but foliage left on Dahlias - 1-2 pairs of leaves. 9. Leave “legs” (seed pots) on Cleomes. 10. Remove foliage from “Bells of Ireland.” 11. Because of the way Pansy’s and Viola’s grow, leaves do not need to be on the stems. 12. In Single Specimen displays, no ribbons, bows, greens or colored containers should be used in exhibits. 13. Watch for water or fertilizers stains on petals. 14. Definitions: Bloom - a stem with a single flower, such as Nasturtium. Branch - off shoot from main stem, such as Rose. Bud - is not a bloom and cannot be considered for any award of a bloom. Spike - length of stem or stalk, usually unbranched and elongated bloom, such as Snap Dragon.

Requirements: - Demonstration / Illustrated Presentations may be related to any project that the member is enrolled in or to any area of interest or expertise the 4-Her has. Presentations may be an individual or a two-person team. Individual presentations shall not exceed 15 minutes in length and team presentations should not exceed 25 minutes in length. - Demonstrations are an oral presentation that includes actually demonstrating the hands-on steps required to accomplish a task or process. This most often includes the use of physical objects and actual doing or showing. For example, a demonstration could involve using bedding plants, potting soil and related items to demonstrate how to plant a flower pot. At the end of the Demonstration there should be something of a "finished product". Demonstrations may also include the use of supporting visuals like posters, charts or overhead transparencies. Supporting visuals can include technology based options like presentation software (i.e. MS PowerPoint). However, the focus of the Demonstration should be on the "doing", not the supporting visuals. - Illustrated Presentations are an oral presentation that presents an idea, concept, viewpoint or experience in an educational or informative format. For example, an Illustrated Presentation could be a report on leadership lessons learned through a trip to Washington DC or an educational presentation that explores sustainable energy options. Illustrated Presentations most often consist of interaction with supporting visuals like posters, charts or overhead transparencies. Supporting visuals can include technology based options like presentation software (i.e. MS PowerPoint). Supporting visuals may include tangible items, but generally little or no activity takes place with the item. - Youth in Action presentations are interactive, continuous presentations that are approximately 45 - 50 minutes in length. Topics selected for a Youth in Action demonstration may be related to a project in which the member is enrolled or to any other area of interest or expertise the member has. Involving the audience in the process is the primary focus of Youth in Action and constitutes a major portion of the evaluation results.

youth leadership P - 480 - 1 Grades 9+ P - 480 - 2 Grades 6-8 P - 480 - 3 Grades 3-5 Purpose: Youth Leadership is a project area that requires the member to discover their skills and then develop those skills and share them with others. This might happen individually or with a group. Guidelines: Taking charge, leading a service project, and sharing the steps from beginning to end would be one example of a youth leadership project. Some ways to present your work would be (but are not limited to): three sided display boards, scrapbooks, and posters. **Champion & Reserve Ribbon**

- Presentation Software (i.e. MS PowerPoint) may be used for both Demonstrations and Illustrated Talks. If Presentation Software is used in a Demonstration, the presentation software should supplement the Demonstration (hands on demonstrating should still be the basis of the entry). If used for an Illustrated Talk, the presentation software can be the basis for the entire talk; however the member must interact with the presentation and information - not just step to the side and let the presentation play. (Self-presenting entries created with presentation software should be burned on to a DVD and entered in the “Video” class.)
