Each 4-H'er may enter a set of only five (5) photos of each different type of animal. Example: 5 pictures of cats on 1 poster, 5 pictures of dogs on 1 poster, etc. If more than 5 photos for each animal are turned in, that photo set will be disqualified.Place name first and last, age, grade and school/club on the back of each poster entered.
Your photos for each pet are to be mounted on a separate “Half” sheet of poster board with captions beneath the photos.On the back of the poster give your name first and last, age, grade, and club.Also add what your pet is (type of dog, cat, fish, rabbit, etc.), name of your pet(s), describe its color, its size (how tall, how much it weighs, etc.) and any other information you would like to add.
