Welcome to the 2016 California Grange Expo



The California Grange Expo brings together all of the Grange contests to make it easier for you, our members and friends, to participate in and support the Grange. This book is for Grange and Junior Grange members of all ages as well as prospective members within the community. Use the Exposition to introduce the Grange to other people. Consider offering workshops or classes at your Grange Hall or meeting place that could result in entries for these contests. Invite experts to introduce new techniques or skills of interest to your members and the community. Hold your own local Exposition to increase the visibility of your Grange in the community.

Separate Divisions are listed for Juniors (4 1/2-13 inclusive) and Youth (14-20) as well as Senior (21+) exhibitors. The age of an entrant, unless otherwise stated, is based on the participant’s age on 1/1/2015. The exhibitor will select the appropriate Section for their participation. The same class numbers are used in each age section.

Pre-registration of entries is required so that the check in process will be smooth and easy for everyone involved.

The California State Grange and the California Grange Expo are not responsible for errors on entry forms. No exhibitor shall be entitled to an award that has been disallowed as a result of his/her own error.

Entries not meeting contest rules, including labeling, will be disqualified and excluded from awards. Entries must be the work of the exhibitor and completed during the contest year. With the exception of classes using recycled items, materials should be new. Work should be clean and in good repair.

Decisions of the judges as recorded on the judging sheets are final. To encourage high standards the judges shall place exhibits based on merit. Judges may withhold placings as they see fit. Best of Show awards will be awarded at the judge’s discretion to superior exhibits.

It is important for exhibitors, GYF advisors, and members to be familiar with the rules under which these contests are held. If you have questions regarding the application of rules, qualification of entries or exhibitors please contacts the appropriate Department Director. You may also contact the Registrar at (559) 935-0926 or by email at expo@castategrange.org
