Dr. Wirt Barnard Memorial Scholarship

This award is presented each year to a 4-Her pre-enrolled at Kansas State University, who has been outstanding in leadership, dependability and character. The award is based on an application, 4-H records and a personal interview.

The 2011 Recipient is: Wade Gutierrez Dr. Barnard was NCK Free Fair Secretary in 1931 when the fair board set aside $450 for 4-H fair premiums for the first time. Dr. Barnard, a local veterinarian, was one of the staunchest supporters of 4-H. It was in his position as fair secretary that he helped promote the idea of 4-H clubs. His active interest in the clubs earned Dr. Barnard the position as county’s club head until a county agent was appointed. Dr. Barnard died March 24, 1967, at the age of 87, but his legacy to 4-H youth in Republic County lives on in the memorial scholarship established in his name by Dr. Barnard’s daughter Virginia Barnard Chapman.

Read General 4-H Regulations. 2. All entries are to be placed in plexiglass covered wooden boxes with outside measurements of 18”x 24”x 3 “. Display boxes with glass covers will not be accepted. 3. Each exhibitor is required to identify each box by placing an identification label bearing exhibitor’s name, county/district, and the class. One label goes in the upper left corner of the box (inside) and the other on the lower right corn of the box (outside). Arrange specimens in the box so it can be display lengthwise. 4. The number of orders, specimens (and families where required) must be included in the exhibitor’s box identification label. 5. Arrangement of specimens: The preferred method is to arrange the insects in groups or rows parallel to the short sides of the box (see publication 4-H 829). Arrangements that run lengthwise is the box are frequently downgraded in judging. Specimens are to be arranged in the box according to Order. Begin with the more primitive Orders first (Collembola) and follow the sequence used in insects in Kansas, as revised in 2000. Order labels should be pinned to the base of the box.

6. For each collection class, two labels will be centered on the pin beneath each specimen. First (closest to the specimen) is the common name label and the second label is a date/locality label. 7. Emphasis in judging will be placed on the overall variety of Kansas insects represented in the collection, accuracy of identification, skill and technique acquired in mounting of specimens, and overall arrangement and appearance in the collection. 8. Specimens of soft-bodied insects such as aphids, lice, collembolan, termites, etc. should be exhibited in alcohol filled vials, however, the use of alcohol filled vials should be limited to only those specimens that lose their shape when pinned, since the vials pose a significant hazard to the rest of the collection if they become loose in transit. Entomology Educational Classes Educational displays are to be exhibited in one standard size insect box and identified by use of an identification label as discussed above. It is to include the exhibitor’s name, county/district, and class. Information on numbers and kinds of insects is not needed for educational exhibits. Displays may consist of specialized groups of insects, or relate to any aspect of insect life. Displays should be presented in a clear, concise, and interesting manner. 1. Educational classes are limited to one standard box, a maximum of 150 specimens, and work performed during the current year. Title of the exhibit should be indicated inside the box. 2. Purpose of the project is to learn more about the importance, life cycles, biology, ecology, diversity, etc. of insects and related arthropods. Subject matter can be as varied as the animals themselves. #216 Beginning Entomology I Collection in one standard box a minimum of 50 and maximum of 125 species representing 7 orders. Members can exhibit in this class a maximum of 3 years, or until they receive a purple ribbon at the Kansas State Fair, whichever comes first. #217 Beginning Entomology II Collection in one standard box a minimum of 75 and maximum of 150 species representing 9 orders. Members can exhibit in this class a maximum of 3 years, or until they receive a purple ribbon at the Kansas State Fair, whichever comes first. #218 Beginning Entomology Educational Exhibit #221 Intermediate Entomology Collection. Display a minimum of 100 and a maximum of 300 insects representing at least 10 orders. Two standard boxes can be used. All specimens should be grouped to order. Family identification is required for all insects in any two of the following six orders: Orthoptera, Hemiptera, Homoptera, Coleoptera, Diptera, and/or Hymenoptera. Observe that the number of families identified in these two orders must be recorded on the box identification labels. Family labels should be pinned to the bottom of the box to represent subdivisions of the appropriate order. Members can exhibit in this class a maximum of 3 years. #222 Intermediate Educational Exhibit #225 Advanced Entomology Collection. Display a minimum of 150 and a maximum of 450 insects representing at least 12 orders. Three standard boxes can be used. Family identification is required for all insects belonging to the six basic orders as outlined under the Intermediate phase. Family identification of insects in the remaining orders is optional, but desirable as long as accuracy is maintained. All butterflies appearing in the collection should be labeled with the correct common name. Members may continue to exhibit in this class at the Kansas State Fair for an unrestricted number of years as long as they remain eligible for 4-H membership. A list should be included each year of what was done to improve the project. #226 Advanced Entomology Educational Exhibit 4-H FIBER ARTS Paula Hobelman, Superintendent Consultation Judging, Wednesday, July 27 Premium Category 3 1.
