JUNIOR ~ Parents should refrain from the natural urge to help prepare exhibits. The judge can always tell, and will mark accordingly. Where the age is requested, please use a “sticky note” that can easily be removed after judging. Please do not write the age of the Junior on the entry tag. Parents and Guardians are reminded to check the exhibit to ensure all personal information is removed or is properly covered during judging and displaying. Check each section for Junior Categories.
