2015 Mississippi Poster Art Program
It is time for the 4-H poster contest! This year there is a choice of themes (“I Am 4-H“ and an open theme which
allows 4-H members to create a poster using their own theme)! The contest is open to all 4-H members. County
level winners’ entries will be submitted to 4-H Congress for judging.
All posters must be designed on or affixed to .016 ply construction poster board (solid fiber board) of 14”x22”
dimension. Posters submitted to the State 4-H Office may be produced by any medium — ink, crayon, acrylic,
charcoal, oil or collage—so long as they are not 3-dimensional. Posters incorporating copyrighted material, will not
be accepted. Posters are due to the Clay County Extension Office on May 20. For a complete list of rules, contact
us at 494-5371.

24th: Exhibit Day
I’m making plans for summer and I need to
know what volunteer leaders and 4-H’ers want to
learn. Please drop me a line and let me know. I am
planning on have a session or two to introduce
4-H’ers to crafts and a few workshops to hopefully
introduce them to a new hobby and create
something they can enter for Exhibit Day. The
summer schedule should be in the next newsletter.
