Exhibitors must receive the endorsement of a county 4-H Educator, FFA Advisor or other breed organization as permitted by the specific department. Any entry that does not receive endorsement will be scratched.

Be sure to check the premium book for the requirements of each species to ensure all required documentation is submitted.
