3) You must use a tri-fold poster board.
4) Posters must be able to stand on their own and can NOT be laid flat on the floor (safety hazard).

A winner will be picked to win a fun prize for meeting all judging criteria, creativity, and tidiness.
OPTIONAL. Girls are encouraged to bring small and inexpensive gifts to swap with their friends and sister queens at the party on Saturday. This has been a very popular tradition with the girls each year. Something simple like a snack, pencil, hair box, etc. with a note attached. THESE DO NOT HAVE TO BE EXPENSIVE!!! Handmade gifts that are creative keepsakes are always a favorite! We ask that girls who wish to participate bring at least 10 small gifts to swap with their own age division. You do not turn these in at registration. You simply bring them to the party on Saturday.
