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 only write the child’s first and last name 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.

Be sure to code your entry tag accurately. M = Ages 8 years and under; N = Ages 9 years to 11 years; P = Ages 12 years to 17 years. Examples on entry tags, M7 = Drawing (Coloured), Age 7; N30 = Model from scratch, Age 10; P38 = Quilting, Age 15

As the display space is limited, we request that exhibitors please keep all entries to a reasonable size. Maximum size for all exhibits is 45 cm x 45 cm (18” x 18”)

Entries from past years will NOT be allowed. All entries will be judged for creativity, originality, and skill regardless of the number of entries in each category. Age-appropriateness can be a significant factor in awarding of prizes!
