Regional Dairy Judging Schools

Attached you will find the flyer for the upcoming Regional Dairy Judging Schools being offered throughout the state.

They are encouraging any 4-H members to consider participating even if you do not have experience with the Dairy Cattle project and would simply like to expand your judging capabilities. It is a great opportunity to learn about one of the State’s fastest agricultural livestock production areas and the animal that is supplying the product for the dairy foods we consume!

All youth are welcome between the ages of 8-18. Contact Tracey Erickson at tracey.erickson@sdstate.edu with any questions.

SD 4-H Leaders Association t-shirt design contest

The SD 4-H Leaders Association is again hosting a t-shirt design contest. See the message below from Executive Secretary Paula Linke.
Hi all – We had wonderful success with our t-shirt logo design contest in 2015 and are excited to plan for this year.
For the 2016 contest, submit your logo design idea via email by June 10. The logo design may be hand drawn or created with computer software, and should be an original idea. Keep in mind a few guidelines for using the 4-H Clover. If you have any questions on these, please let me know.
Use the whole Emblem. The 4-H Emblem should always appear in its entirety—meaning it should always appear as a whole and complete image.
Do not remove any leaves. The leaves cannot be removed or have another image superimposed over the top of any of the leaves. Other images should be moved and appear completely separate from the 4-H Emblem. This also means you should not “cut off” a leaf by running it off the edge of the paper in print media or other designs.
Do not place text or other images over or on top of the 4-H Emblem. The 4-H Emblem should not appear screened or watermarked under words or graphics. No photo, drawing, symbol, word, or other figure or object may be placed on or obscure the 4-H Emblem.
Keep it upright. The 4-H Emblem should not be rotated or turned on its side.
Distortion and Proportion. The appearance, shape, and proportion of the 4-H Emblem should never be distorted to fit in an imprint space. Do not make the 4-H Emblem longer, taller, wider, angled, or squarer. Do not alter the shape in any way. The overall size of the 4-H Emblem may be changed, but the proportions must remain intact.
Color. The 4-H Emblem should never be screened, shaded, gradated, or appear in a multi-colored hue. Graphic Designers: The official color is 100% PMS 347 green.
The clover can be green, white, black, or metallic gold. Below are the official guidelines for each color clover:
The “H’s” on the green clover can be white, black, or metallic gold. The H’s on the black clover should be white. The H’s on the white clover can be black or green. The H’s on the metallic gold clover can be white, black, or metallic gold (when embossed).
The winning logo will be used on shirts that we sell at the SD State Fair and throughout the year. The person who submits the winning logo will receive $50. Get those ideas coming!!
