12.        A 4-H/FFA animal sold at public auction or privately, whether for immediate or future delivery, cannot from the time of such sale, be shown by the seller in any 4-H or FFA show.

13. Animals that have gone through the sale can go home, to a locker, or home.  As long as the animal never goes to another show.

14.        The 2019 sale order will be: Sheep, Goat, Swine and Beef.

15.        Animals sold through the premium sale or for base price, must be a healthy, merchandisable product.

17.        4-H/FFA Members are expected to show their appreciation to their livestock sale buyer with a thank you card, or in some other way.

18. Exhibitors must be present to walk their own animals through the sale ring.  If an event/injury occurs that the exhibitor is unable to; the sale committee will decide if another 4-H member can assist.

DIVISION 27 - ENTOMOLOGY

A 4-H member may exhibit in the ENTOMOLOGY COLLECTION, ENTOMOLOGY NOTEBOOK and/or EDUCATIONAL DISPLAY classes in the Beginning, Intermediate or Advanced phase in which they enroll.

COLLECTION CLASSES

General Guidelines

1.        All entries should be submitted in an 18 x 24 x 3.5 inch wooden display box with a clear plastic top. Boxes can be handmade or purchased as long as they are of the correct size and do not have a glass top.

2.  Identification should follow the taxonomy included in www.bugguide.net.

3.  Each exhibitor is required to identify each box by placing an identification label bearing exhibitor’s name, county or district and the class. One label goes in the upper left corner of the box (inside) and the other on the lower right corner of the box (outside). Arrange specimens in the box so it can be displayed lengthwise.

4. The number of orders, specimens (and families where required) must be included on the exhibitor’s box identification label. Only adult specimens can be used in collection boxes.

5. Arrangement of specimens: The preferred method is to arrange the insects in groups or rows parallel to the short sides of the box. Arrangements that run lengthwise of the box are frequently downgraded in judging. Specimens are to be arranged by Order in the box, then family where required.  

6. For each collection class, two labels will be centered on the pin beneath each specimen. First (closest to the specimen) is the common name label and the second label should include date/locality. Full county name, state abbreviation and collector name on the second label are encouraged for 2015 and will be required in 2016. The specimens should be collected by the exhibitor and should focus on Kansas and neighboring states. Other specimens from the continental United States may be included as long as properly labeled.

7. Emphasis in judging will be placed on the overall variety of insects represented in the collection, accuracy of identification, skill and technique acquired in mounting of specimens, and overall arrangement and appearance of the collection.

8. Specimens of soft bodied insects such as aphids, lice, termites, etc. should be exhibited in alcohol filled vials; however, the use of alcohol filled vials should be limited to only those specimens that lose their shape when pinned, since the vials pose a significant hazard to the rest of the collection if they become loose in transit.

The number of orders, specimens and families (required in Intermediate and Advanced classes) must also be included on the Title Page.

4. Species pages should be grouped according to order and should include one page per species.

5. Date, common name, full county name, state abbreviation and collector name should be included for each species.

6. If picture is taken on different dates/localities include information for both. A statement describing the host plant/habitat should be included.

7. A divider page is to be placed in front of each order of insects with the order name printed on the tab for the page and also on the front of the divider page.

8. For the Intermediate and Advanced classes, insects are also to be grouped by family behind each order divider.

9. List on a sheet of paper how many years you have been in this division of the project and what you did this year to improve your project if you have been in for more than one year. Place the paper just behind the Title Page in the front of your notebook.
