  February 1, 2021 --

Below are the contest rules for entry in the National Grange Display Contest. Your CT State Grange Youth Team would like to see all entries in to the State Director by September 15 for judging at the State level.

The goal of the Grange Display Contest is to create either a digital or folding display that could be utilized at a county fair, library, Grange open house or other forum to promote the Grange, Grange pro- gram or Grange issue.

Contest Rules:

All entrants must be youth or young adult members of a Subordinate/Community Grange.

There will be two age divisions of the Folding Display Contest: Youth – Grange members between the ages of 14-21 as of Jan. 1; Young Adult- Grange members between the ages of 22-35.

Each entry must be selected at a State Grange level contest. Each state may send up to one entry per category to the National Contest. The display theme must be Grange related. State Youth Directors must notify the National Youth Di- rector by Oct. 1 or after the State Session, of State winners.

All entries must be exhibited at the National Grange Session; mem- bers need not attend to participate. A Grange member may enter as an individual OR as a member of a group. All group entry members must be in the same age division.

Folding  display  should  be  no larger than 3’ by 4’ and should be able to stand by itself. Digital dis- plays must be on a flash drive and in .MP4, .MPG, WMA format.

Displays will be judged on content, organization, originality, and neatness.
