RULES & REGULATIONS
1. A junior exhibitor number can be obtained by emailing email@example.com with the following information: Exhibitor Name, Exhibitor Age (as of July 31, 2020), Parent Name, Parent Email, Mailing Address, Phone Number.
2. Please show the age of exhibitor in the image in ALL CATEGORIES, or entry will be disqualified. Show the age only, no names or other identifying information. Some ways to do this – write the age on the exhibit, include a small piece of paper with the age in the image, or add the text on to the image before submitting.
3. All entries must be handmade, and not computer generated.
4. Roots, vegetables and flowers must be home grown.
5. Use a white/neutral background when taking photos, if possible.
