4-H Still Life Sale

NEW FOR 2017
The 2017 ICF 4-H Still Life Sale includes a live auction format open to one project entry per still life exhibitor who achieves a blue ribbon and completes a market plan for that specific project.



Design and complete a project/s this current year that will be appropriate and appealing to sell

Enter the project/s in the Fair in May in its appropriate department (as usual)

Enter 4-H Personal Development in the Fair in May, Department 72, Division E – Entrepreneurship

Develop and complete a 4-H Market Plan for each project that you may want to sell

Project/s judging (must earn a blue ribbon when judged)

Entrepreneurship judging (a complete 4-H Market Plan for each project that you may want to sell)


Judging is “open order” – you may go to either project judging or Entrepreneurship first depending on your
schedule and the number of exhibitors ahead of you and then go to the other judging area

Select the project you wish to sell

Check in to the Still Life Sale area with the project and 4-H Market Plan to confirm that you will be
