Videos, powerpoints, etc must be submitted on a flash drive labeled with your name and club.

Three ring binders work best for a record book.

Each project area should have a divider with a tab for easy finding.

Project areas can be kept in any order by are more easily located if alphabetized.

Record books can be divided in years or project areas, however always have the most current year in the front of the book or section.

Be sure to share what you learned in each project throughout the year.

Fair goal sheets may be included but additional explanations of project area learning may be needed.

Remember to include all things you have done in project area, not just what you exhibited at fair.
