Home Arts General Rules
All articles must be made by the exhibitor and not previously displayed at the Beltrami County Fair.
Carefully follow instructions as to size, quantity and presentation of exhibits located at the beginning of each section. Questions- call the Supervisor of that Section. We are happy to help.
Limit of one entry per exhibitor in any lot.
When two levels exist, entry can only be made in the advanced lot or the Beginner lot, not in both.
Bring items for entry to Home Arts area between the hours of 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm on Tuesday, or noon to 4:00 pm on Wednesday of fair week. No mailed items accepted. If someone else brings the items, have an information card attached to each item with class and lot clearly identified.
All items entered, remain on exhibit until closing time on Sunday afternoon. Claim tickets will be given when the item is entered and must be presented during pick up time to claim your item and award. No early release of items.
The American judging system is used. This judging system ranks exhibits one against another and awards one first place, one second place, and one third place. The judges may withhold awards in any lot if, in their opinion, no exhibit is worthy.
Every item in competition must correspond in number and description with the award list and be entered in the proper class. No changes or alterations shall be permitted after entry time is closed.
Items not in the premium list may be exhibited at the discretion of the Superintendent, but will not be considered for Placings. The Home Arts Department welcomes such exhibits; if the items create interest, we may add it as a new category to next years judged exhibits.
All items are entered and show at the risk of the owners. While all reasonable care will be taken in the handling and protection of exhibits, the officials will in no case be responsible for any damage or loss.
