Poster tips:

Posters may be educational based on your club project or another 4-H project (you can submit up to 4 entries from different categories) or posters may be promotional, highlighting your favorite aspect of 4-H or what you think 4-H has to offer.

The 4-H Tip Sheet includes practical recommendations to help create effective paper or digital posters. To get started:

  • Choose your topic
  • Do your research
  • Sketch out your ideas—Have Fun with this! Do your best to do it yourself and not have parents or siblings “help”
  • Design your poster or display—get creative and have fun with the digital process
  • Choose color or colors
  • Make sure to use correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation
  • Choose your pictures, photos, clipart, graphs, or drawings (NO copyright material unless you have permission from the source)
  • Remember to cite your sources (include the full URL).
  • Entries will be judged against the standard as defined on the scorecard, not in competition with other posters.
  • Be entered by the date specified above.
  • Have properly completed the Still Life Entry Tag securely attached to the lower left corner of poster.
  • Top of the entry tag should be taped to the back of poster with tag information facing forward below the poster.
  • Meet all requirements on the Scorecard.
  • Be legible from a distance of 10 feet.
  • Do not use copyrighted or brand names in your poster entries
  • Educate the public and be self-explanatory (Examples: “Don’t feed your dog chocolate” could say “Chocolate can be toxic to” or “Eat fruits and vegetables” could say “Eating fruits and vegetables helps build strong, healthy bodies”).
  • For promotional 4-H posters, do not need to list citations.
