4-H Art Exhibit and Educational Posters


  • All exhibitors must be current, active members in good standing with a 4-H group in Walton or Holmes Counties. Members of 4-H groups of other counties that do not have a fair exhibit may also enter. The exhibitor’s 4-H Agent’s name and number must be provided in the event there are questions in the logging in or setup of displays or regarding an exhibitor’s status with 4-H, age or other criteria.
  • Exhibitors must clearly mark their pieces with their age group (Cloverbuds 5-7 yrs, Junior 8-10 yrs, Intermediate 11-13 yrs, or Senior 14-18 yrs). Age as of the first day of September of the exhibit year is used to determine category. The exhibitor’s 4-H County must be indicated.
  • Each artist may submit a total of 5 paintings for judging. Any painting over this limit may be accepted on a space-available basis but will be placed in a separate category that will not be judged. Art must have been completed during a 4-H project or club (not school work or non-project related work; these works may be exhibited in Youth Art separately).


    Pictures must be properly framed, wired, and ready to hang and media must be dry.

    Art pieces must not exceed 36” in width (frame included) so that they may be safely displayed.

    Art must be appropriate for all age groups to view (no nudity, violence or other inappropriate content)

    Participants will remain with their art pieces until they have been properly logged and tagged.

    Exhibits will be categorized by age groups, media and/or subject matter. Judging categories may be changed to accommodate limited art entries. Should there be insufficient artists (at least 3) entering a category, entries will be shown but not judged or subcategories will be eliminated and judged under media alone.

    Works entered should be completed within the last 4-H year (Sept of previous year through August of the current year) and not have been entered in the Walton County Fair previously.

    Judging will be based on creativity, principles of design, and technical excellence.
