  • Posters must be 14” x 22” in size. No other size will be allowed. Do not use foam board or regular paper, please use only poster board. Posters of incorrect size will be disqualified. Posters may be white or colored.
  • Youth name, grade, and club (if applicable) must be on a 3″ X 5″ card attached to the back of the poster.
  • All types of art techniques may be used in the production of a poster (including collages). All posters should have a title or slogan in conjunction with the artwork. Copyright cartoons such as Snoopy and Garfield are not allowed.
  • All 4-H Clovers (those with H’s) must adhere to the copyrighted guidelines. In short, no artwork or text may cover any part of the clover.
