Use haybales, wooden boards, scarecrows, leaves, banners, pumpkins, 4-H clovers, signs, recyclables, toys, whatever you have to create your display. Photograph your creation, then, email your display to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Tips for 4-H'ers
- Talk with the adults in your home to help select a location that will work well for your display. Since your display will be in place for a week, be sure it is out of the way of walking, lawn mowing, parking cars, etc.
- Decide if you'll be doing the display on your own, or if others will be join in.
- Gather as many props as possible before you start designing.
- Make your display easy to read and eyecatching. Consider using bright colors to attract attention.
- Be creative and be flexible. If something doesn't work, try something else.
- Be sure to have fun. After all, that is the whole point!
Once your display is in place, send an email to email@example.com with the following information:
- Names of everyone who helped create the display.
- Location of the display (example: front porch or next to the mailbox)
- Address of the display
- Title for the display
