Each year the NC 4-H Dairy Poster Contest involves a large number of youth in a meaningful learning experience as they learn about our dairy industry.
The theme for the 2015 Dairy Poster Contest is “Get More with Milk”. Youth should incorporate this theme into their posters. Please note the following rules:
- Competition in this contest will be conducted on an individual basis in Division I (9-12 years of age), Division II (13-15 years of age), and Division III (16-19 years of age) at the county and state level. Youth in Division IV (5-8 years of age) will participate on a non-competitive basis at the county level only.
- Posters should be a standard 22″ X 28″ size.
- Posters MUST NOT contain copyright material such as cartoon characters, etc.
- Posters must have been displayed at least once in a public place.
Posters will be judged at the county level and winners will be submitted for state level competition. All posters at the state competition in Division I, II, and III will be displayed in a prominent place during the dairy shows in the Jim Graham Building at the NC State Fair. The following awards will be provided to state winners in Division I, Division II, and Division III by the Southeastern United Dairy Industry Association (SUDIA):
