Educational Posters always seem to bring up questions about the way that they are scored.  So here are a few pointers about making an effective poster. Remember it needs to be something that can be seen and read as the audience walks by. A high scoring Educational Poster should be:

  • large enough to be seen
  • lettered large enough and dark enough to be seen by the audience
  • uncrowded
  • neatly done and clean
  • on heavy cardboard that will not buckle or bend

Poster Workshop PowerPoint (this will take you away from the Chelan-Douglas 4-H page) you will find the “Making Informational Posters” in the lower right of the WA State 4-H page.
