Open Class GENERAL RULES: County fair competition is separate from state fair competition. County winners DO NOT automatically advance to the state fair. Entry deadline for state fair is July 1. For more information call the Extension Office, 812-988‑5495. Entries are open to all residents of Brown County or members of a Brown County organization. Entries can be made in each class of any section. Where specific rules apply, they will be noted under individual categories. Miscellaneous is only for the articles where there is no specific category. (More than one entry may be made in Miscellaneous providing they are different.) Entries must be completed or grown by the exhibitor since the previous Brown County Fair (except photography). The 4‑H Fair Association will not be responsible for any exhibit. However, hostesses will be on duty to protect exhibits. All exhibits (except floriculture, gardening, food preparation and food preservation) must be entered Saturday, July 24 from 10 a.m. to noon. Late entries can be made Monday, July 26 from 9-10 a.m. All floriculture and gardening, food preservation and food preparation exhibits must be entered Monday, July 26 from 10 a.m. to noon. If an exhibitor earns their livelihood or makes $1,200 or more in a year in an individual section they wish to enter, a “P” will be added to their section number to indicate they are a professional. This is to make the judge aware of their experience in comparison with an amateur exhibitor. Exhibits must be claimed Saturday, July 31 between 2 and 5 p.m. Exhibits CANNOT be removed between the time of official entry and release. Exhibits will NOT be released before 2 p.m. The 4‑H Fair Association is not responsible for exhibits left after release time. The Danish system of judging (where a project is judged first on its own merit by certain guidelines)

will be used and each placing will be determined by the judge according to the quality of the exhibits. All exhibits will be marked with a ribbon to designate the placing following the judging according to the official records. A champion and reserve champion ribbon will be awarded from the blue ribbon winners in each section, providing there are at least three blue ribbons in the section.
