All entries must have an accompanying 3x5 card explaining the process for creation of this year’s exhibit. The original item must be distinguishable, even if only through explanation, to the judge. Entries will be judged on ingenuity, construction, functionality, and style. Base Item is chosen by the Superintendent. Class will be judged at the same time as other Division S contests by the same judge. The base item may be an article of denim clothing or a commercially knit garment.
