Age Divisions: Juniors are 7-9; Intermediates are 10-13; and Seniors are 14 and over by January 1 of current year. 6. Attach entry card with string or tape. Entry cards for each exhibit will be sent out to exhibitors with the Fair Survival Guide 2. 7. 4-Hers may be present to observe judging, but it is not required. 8. A 4-H member may choose to exhibit in the Collection and/or Educational class and/or notebook class for the phase in which they are enrolled. 9. The Advanced Entomology classes 2507 and 2508 are for 4-H’ers enrolled in the Self-Determined project. 10. All entries are to be placed in plexiglass covered (Plexiglass required) wooden boxes with outside measurements of 18” x 24” x 3 ½ “. Display boxes with glass covers WILL NOT be accepted. See the specific phase for box and specimen number limitations. 11. Each exhibitor is required to identify each box by placing an identification label bearing exhibitor’s name county or district and the class. One label goes in the upper left corner of the box (inside) and the other on the lower right corner of the box (outside). Arrange specimens in the box so it can be displayed lengthwise. 12. The number of orders, specimens (and families where required) must be included on the exhibitor’s box identification label. 13. Arrangement of specimens: The preferred method is to arrange the insects in groups or rows parallel to the short sides of the box (see illustrations in 4-H 829). Arrangements that run lengthwise of 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. 14. 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. 15. Emphasis in judging will be placed on the variety of Kansas insects represented, accuracy of identification, skill and technique acquired in mounting of specimens and overall arrangement and appearance of the collection.

84


16. Specimens of soft bodied insects such as aphids, lice, collembola, termites and 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. 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, 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 and 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. SPECIAL AWARDS: Grand Champion Reserve Champion
