Green Stick & Potted Burley Tobacco should be entered as Division 2103.

NOTE: State Fair has dropped Tobacco Grading. The 4-H tobacco exhibit rules and classes are determined by the state fair committee, not the 4-H office; therefore, there could be changes to this category. This should be used only as a guide. The classes below are taken from the 2016 Kentucky State Fair catalog. The final decisions will not be made until June 2017 by the state fair board. 1. See General Rules applying to all 4-H exhibitors and general rules applying to all exhibits other than livestock listed previously in this catalog. 2. An exhibitor may enter in any one or all different classes. However, one exhibitor is limited to ONE entry per class (Potted Plant, Green stick and Stripped Tobacco). Make entries using entry form for 4-H Youth section. 3. Each stick of green tobacco consists of 4 stalks per stick. 4. All entries in the green stick classes should be wilted for better presentation, but must still be in GREEN STAGE. Green tobacco will be judged on uniformity, general appearance and quality. The Superintendent has the right to disqualify any stick entered into the green stick category that has cured beyond the green stage. 5. All growing tobacco plants should be potted in a waterproof plastic bag and placed in an attractive container before arrival at the Fair. A five (5) gallon bucket is suggested. 6.

Envelopes should be attached to permit their being opened easily to remove catalogue from them without moving the exhibit. f. Most specimens in the display cases should be pinned, and the use of vials is discouraged. If vials are used, they may account for no more than 2% of a collection. Vials must be securely wired or pinned to the pinning bottoms. g. The inclusion of non-insect specimens (spiders, e.g.) is encouraged, but because this is primarily an insect collection, and because non-insects do not preserve well on insect pins, points will be deducted if there are more than one specimen from each noninsect class. 4. Entomology exhibits are judged on the following categories: Orders, Species, Common Names, Labels, Condition of Specimens, Overall Appearance, Life Cycle Representation, Catalog of Specimens. Check with County 4-H Agent for point distribution on score sheet. 5. Exhibits will be penalized if they do not: a. Use insect pins for pinning insects.

11. The following scorecard will be used to judge Geology exhibits: a. Correct identification and labeling: 5 points for each specimen. (Collections will be judged more favorably that have different types of specimens, rather than many different varieties of the same rock, mineral, or fossil; i.e., gray limestone, light gray limestone, dark gray limestone, or red calcite, blue calcite, green calcite). b. Cards/specimen: 1 point each that each specimen has the label completely filled out, along with specimen number, c. Found on site: Since this is an exercise in becoming familiar with rocks, minerals, and fossils, an extra 1 point will be given for specimens that are found rather than purchased or given as gifts. (Be sure to ask permission if you have to enter private property. The Internet is a good place to search for rock clubs and geological surveys of your and other states for information on collecting localities. d. Neatness, arrangements, background: 20 points for total exhibit. 14. Class champion will be selected in each class, and a grand champion and reserve grand champion will be selected from class champions. 12. 4-H’ers entering the fifth year and higher cannot enter the same exhibit that has been judged in any previous State Fair.
