Each Grange may exhibit any hand made objects, home produced products and homegrown vegetables and flowers, displayed as they choose, within the allotted space. All items must be made or grown by a Granger. The theme may be chosen by each individual grange.
Also required in every exhibit will be: an American flag, the Grange symbol, and at least three photographs of Grangers at work within their respective Community. Each exhibit should identify the location to that Grange. (Example: Riverside Grange—Dalton, NH)

2. Organization and overall effectiveness of the exhibit—15 pts.
3. “Stopping Power” of the exhibit—10 pts.
