Exhibitor Entry Form
DO’s and DON’Ts
- DO enter something in every section you can. It’s fun to compete. If no one else enters, you’re bound to get a prize.
- DO use rubber bands to attach entry tags to jars and some other items. They’re handy things.
- DO RESIST the urge to FIX your child’s entry. It must be their own work.
- DO use safety pins NEVER straight pins to attach tags to fabric items.
- DON’T use plastic wrap to cover your food entries, use clear plastic bags.
- DON’T put too many or too few items on the plate. If the description says 3 cookies, it must be 3, no more, no less, or your entry will be disqualified.
- DON’T put it off. Get working on those entries NOW! We so look forward to handing out prizes.
