There are two categories to this contest.
- Digital Displays
- Non-Digital Displays
The goal of this contest is to create a display promoting your Junior Grange and to use it in the community your Junior Grange serves.
ABOUT YOUR DISPLAY
Junior Grange displays should promote the active role your Junior Grange takes in its community by highlighting the activities your Junior Grange puts on, the community service projects it engages in, and the future vision of the membership.
The displays can also briefly highlight the history of the organization.
Displays should be visually appealing, including pictures to enhance the viewer’s experience.
Displays can be both active and passive in nature.
|Active displays:||displays where Junior Grange members are there to talk to potential new members and answer any questions about what your Junior Grange does.|
|Passive displays:||displays that are set up for the public to view without anyone being there to answer potential questions.|
|Both displays should should have the information necessary for someone to find out more information about your Junior Grange including, but not limited to: website, meeting date & time, email, social media addresses, etc. Displays should also be stocked with pamphlets about the Junior Grange and membership applications for anyone wishing to fill one out.
In developing your display, consider what your Junior Grange does to improve your community and the things that would entice people to join your Junior Grange and become active members. Also consider what are the outcomes of being a Junior Grange member, not just the features of membership
|Digital displays:||can be a video, or a collection of images and text that showcase what your Junior Grange does to serve its members and better its community. Digital displays can be created in a variety of programs including, but not limited to: Microsoft PowerPoint, Prezi, Google Slides, Keynote, iMovie, Adobe Spark, Windows Movie Maker, and Impress. Digital displays can also have audio laid over the images with a narrator explaining the outcomes of being a Grange member and why someone should join the Junior Grange. Digital displays should be viewed on a laptop computer or TV screen that is set up at the events your Grange is working.|
