DIVISION: GEOLOGY The following classes are for 4-H youth 8 to 18 years of age. Geology projects will be judged on Thursday, July 17, 2014. Two 4-H'ers can be selected for the Illinois State Fair from the following Geology classes. Size and number of exhibit cases should relate appropriately to the number of specimens being displayed for a specified class. Specimens are not limited to Illinois locations. All levels of Geology use the same manual, What on Earth – Geology Study Guide.4-H’ers are limited to receive one premium per class exhibited in premium eligible projects. Blue Red White PEBBLE PUPS I: 4x 3x 2x Display 8 to 19 rocks or mineral specimens with 3 minerals in the collection. Collection may include duplications that show variation. Label collection and note where found. PEBBLE PUPS II: 4x 3x 2x Display at least 20, but no more than 29 rocks or mineral specimens with 7 minerals in the collections. Collection may include duplications that show variations. Label collection and note where found. ROCK HOUNDS I: 4x 3x 2x Display at least 30, but no more than 40, rocks and mineral specimens with ten minerals in the collection. Rocks should include at least three igneous, two metamorphic, and three sedimentary groups. Label collection and note where found. ROCK HOUNDS II: 4x 3x 2x This level is for those who have successfully completed Rock Hounds I. Display no more than 50 specimens that have been selected to illustrate a specific theme of the exhibitor’s choosing. Be creative. Sample categories could include (but are not limited to): industrial minerals and their uses; a specific rock group and the variety that occurs in that group, including some minerals that occur in that environment; select fossils traced through the geologic ages; minerals and their crystal habits; rocks and minerals used in the lapidary arts. CLOVER CHALLENGE: GEOLOGY 4x 3x 2x Open to 15-18 year olds enrolled in the Forestry clover challenge project area. Exhibits in this category should go “above and beyond” what the 4-H project books cover. Exhibit a display illustrating the Clover Challenge area that you explored. This could include anything NOT covered in the project book, including but not limited to career exploration or an in-depth study of a specific topic in that project’s subject matter. The completed Illinois 4-H Clover Challenge Agreement must be presented with the exhibit. The agreement can be found at: http://web.extension.illinois.edu/state4h/projects/.
