Youth who exhibited projects related to IH/Farmall tractors, farm equipment or other items in the IH brand family in any class at the state fair were eligible to participate through an application process.
4-H members provided information related to their project goals, process, problem solving, expenses and learning for an opportunity to win a monetary award and a one-year membership to the IH Collector’s Club Chapter 5.
