ONLINE ENTRIES STEP BY STEP, HOW TO GUIDE

For Registering

Exhibitor: An individual exhibitor.

Quick Group: Individual exhibitors registering as a “quick group” create individual logins and are able to check out with one cart, at one time. After check out, these entries separate and show up as transactions under the individual login.

Team/Company: This allows you to register as a farm name/team/company instead of a “First, Last.”

*USE Team/Company FOR CLUB ENTRIES. Enter the 1 item, then put the child’s name in Description. Then, add similar item and add another child’s name. Repeat for all entries. It enters items as a club and the premium check is cut to the club, as a whole. For FFA teachers registering entire class entries, the students name will be placed in the description. For 4-H Club/Clover leaders, the kid’s name is in description.

Club/School: These are preset in the system with passwords, issued by the fair admin office. This is to log in and look at entries that were submitted with your club name associated.

HELPFUL TIP:

“Add Similar Entry” allows you to enter an item and click “add similar entry” to copy the exact same item again, enabling you to change the division, class it falls under. (This will make it easier to register the same animal for both 4-H/FFA and Open. Also a useful tool for FFA advisors entering 30 children for the same item.)

Contests

LANDSCAPE CONTEST

Theme: Farm Fresh Fun: Lettuce Turnip the Beet!

Sponsored By: Ruppert Landscape

The Great Frederick Fair is featuring its twenty-sixth (2021) annual Ruppert’s Landscape Contest as another way to show the diversity of agriculture in Frederick County. This program is dedicated to educating the public about landscaping within the agriculture industry as well as to promote the landscaping industry before an audience of 250,000 spectators. Various sites on the grounds have been designated to be temporarily beautified with landscape designs by both students and professional landscapers. Not only will these areas be greatly enhanced but, they will also provide ideas and educational information to spectators.

Landscapers are encouraged to use the theme when designing their areas. The contest has two divisions–one for students and one for professionals. In addition to improving the grounds, the landscapers have the opportunity to earn cash prizes. This is an excellent way for landscaping companies to advertise in front of a captive audience.
