Cultural Arts Special Project 2018

For 2019, the committee has chosen a birdhouse for the Special Project. The birdhouse must be homemade and an original design. We ask that no kits be used. The birdhouse is not to be taller than 15 inches.

The committee also decided to add an additional category to the regular projects. We will be adding a category for Knitting/Crocheting; this will make 4 categories to include Quilts, Needlework, Other Crafts and Knitting/Crocheting.

We invite each county to choose 1 item for the Special Project and 1 item for the additional craft categories for a total of 2 items entered per county. We look forward to a very successful Home and Family Conference in Indianapolis in 2019.
