In lots where exhibits are made by only one exhibitor, the Fair will pay only second premium money, and that only if the entry is worthy.

The right is reserved to withhold the premiums awarded in any case where the Fair deems that the regulations have not been complied with; or that fraud or deception has been attempted; or where an exhibit is not worthy. The decision of the Board or its representatives shall be final and binding on all parties.

Judges will be instructed not to award premiums to any exhibit because of its presence. It must be worthy. It is not the policy of the Fair to encourage indifferent production. No premium will be awarded to any exhibit that does
not possess high intrinsic merit.

The single judge system is the policy of the Fair. Judges will be selected with the utmost care.

The Fair reserves the right to use the three judge system should circumstances arise where it would prove of mutual benefit to the Fair and the exhibitors. The Fair reserves the right to substitute judges in place of those named.
In cases of doubt or difficulty, judges will consult with the chairperson of the department.

Any exhibitor attempting or in any way interfering with the judges in their adjudications will be promptly excluded from competition and any premiums awarded withheld.

The decision of the judges will be final.
