State Fair Geology Update
In light of being unable to host the geology field trip and circumstances related to specimen collection, the 4-H Geology Action team has voted to modify the collection rules for the 2020 Kansas State Fair.
"the current year specimen number rule shall be modified for the 2020 4-H year for geology exhibit state fair classes 5200, 5201, 5202 and 5203, due to these extraordinary circumstances, to read: Five (5) specimens must be collected during the current 4-H year."
The rule change only pertains to the 2020 4-H year. So for example, this year participants need only 5 (new) specimens collected during the current year, which begins the day after last year's state fair. The total number of specimens (15, 30, 45 & 60) per any given exhibit class remains the same. So for a 15 specimen exhibit, for example, the participant needs only 5 specimens from the current year and the remaining 10 could be collected during previous years.
