The Haskell County Fair Board would like to thank all those who have supported this endeavor. The fair board is extremely grateful to those individuals and groups who have volunteered their time, materials, ideas, services, and financial support and to those who enter or exhibit at the fair.

The fair board is excited about the county fair and hopes it will be a focal point for our community and a celebration that involves our entire county and the surrounding area. Plan to participate as an exhibitor or a spectator!

A properly conducted fair should and does result in increased production. No one factor does more to stimulate effort in the improvement in farm conditions than the county fair. It is there that the farmer has an opportunity to see and to compare his work with the efforts of others. Success in competing with one's neighbors stimulates the farmer to greater efforts.

It is the purpose of the Haskell County Fair Board to make this fair an educational institution and to encourage cooperation among farmers and business people in the various communities of the county.

In no case shall the Haskell County Fair or any of its officers be responsible for damages in any loss, damage, injury, death or disability by disease or from theft or from any other cause to any such preperty, or to any person at the Haskell County Fairgrounds. The Haskell County Fair hereby refuses to assume any responsibility for the safety as bailee or otherwise, or any property brought upon the Haskell County Fairgrounds, said property being brought upon and kept upon said grounds at owner's risk.

The management reserves the right to exclude from the grounds any person or persons whom they deem undesirable, or expel from the grounds such person.

Anyone involved in the water fight, whether voluntarily or otherwise, may NOT physically force or dunk another person. Please use common sense and keep it under control. The Fair Association will not be responsible for any injuries or damages.

      1. To exhibit in this division, the rocket must have been flown. Support rods must not extend past the tip of the highest nosecone on the model. Support rods must remain in the upright position, do not angle. No model may be submitted on a launch pad. The report that accompanies the rocket must be limited to the 4-H Rocket Exhibit Information Form which is glued to a 10" x 13" envelope.

If a rocket kit has been modified structurally, notations need to be given that indicate the changes made. One or more photographs of the rocket at the launch site are required. Photographs showing the rocket at the moment of ignition are preferred. Photographs should be mounted on one side of an 8 ½" x 11" page.
      3. For a rocket entered in the original design classes, one extra page of photographs may be added to show unusual construction or other important features. Described in the summary how the model was tested for stability prior to flying.

      2. Exhibits must be uniformly painted, smoothly finished, and have decals applied smoothly. Fins should be rounded or streamlined. Fins and body tubes are to be sealed to eliminate the appearance of body grooves and wood grain. Any seams or plastic parts are to be sanded smooth. The rocket is to be properly assembled. Fins and launch lugs are to be filleted to reduce dray and properly secure them to the model. The nose cone is to fit snugly but still allow for easy removal.
      3. Model may not be judged based on their paint scheme, with the exception of rockets that fit the definition of a scale model. They may be judged based on paint scheme. Under no circumstances is the weight given to the paint scheme to be sufficient enough, by itself, to move the model from one ribbon placing to another.
      4. Flight damage is to be documented by the participant. The judging of flight damage is to secondary to all other aspects of the model and only then may it even be considered.
      5. Beginner kits with prefabricated fin assemblies and pre-finished rockets requiring no painting are not acceptable, and will be given a participation ribbon.
      6. Engines and igniter are not permitted with the exhibit.

One label goes in the upper left corner of the box (inside) and the other on the back of the box (outside). Arrange specimens in the box so it can be displayed lengthwise.
      5. The number of orders, specimens (and families, where required) must be included on the exhibitor's box identification label.
      6. Arrangement of specimens: The preferred method is to arrange the insects in groups or rows parallel to the short sides of the box. Arrangements that run lengthwise of the box are frequently down-graded in judging. Specimens are to be arranged in the box according to Order. Begin with the more primitive orders first (Collembola) and follow the sequence used in Insects in Kansas, as revised in 2000.
      7. For each collection class, two labels will be centered on the pin beneath each specimen. First (closest to the specimen) is the common name label and the second label is a date/locality label.
      8. Emphasis in judging will be placed on the overall variety of Kansas insects represented in the collection, accuracy of identification, skill, and technique acquired in mounting of specimens, and overall arrangement and appearance of the collection.
      9. Specimens of soft bodied insects such as aphids, lice, collembola, termites and etc. should be exhibited in alcohol filled vials; however, the use of alcohol filled vials should be limited to only those specimens that lose their shape when pinned, since the vials pose a significant hazard to the rest of the collection if they become loose in transit.
