Goodbye paper rulebook, hello PDF rulebook

A few paper rulebooks from Minnesota State Fairs past.
May is the month for the new Minnesota State Fair Ag Hort Bee -- including Crop Art -- rulebook. For many years,  the rulebooks have been paper. They were mailed to all past participants. It was a wake-up call to start thinking about this year's State Fair. 

Maybe five years ago, the paper books were no longer mailed to everyone. They continued to be published, but they were only mailed to people who specifically requested them every year. The main way to learn the rules -- and to enter the competitions -- has become the Internet.

This year marks the first time the paper rulebooks are no longer printed. The rules are only available online. 

That said, it's time to start thinking about this year's Crop Art.

Here are some links to get you started.

A series of articles with non-official, but perhaps useful information on Crop Art competitions: 

Best wishes on your projects this year!
