DIVISION II – DESIGN (Please read General Rules)
“Going to the Dogs”
A Standard Flower Show for Adults and Youth
DESIGN DIVISION CHAIR: Carol Ullerich, carolullerich123@gmail.com, 270-564-7592
DESIGN DIVISION COMMITTEE: Sherry Dorris, richard.dorris@sbcglobal.net, 630-234-1594; Anne McNeilly, amcneilly@comcast.net, 270-217-5690; Sally Wilkins, sjwilkins190@att.net, 270-898-7798

Pets are an important part of life. Dogs often comfort us; cats often ignore us; both entertain us. In 2019 it was estimated 54.4 million American households include a dog. Seeing, touching, hearing and talking to pets induces good will, joy, nurturing and happiness. Pets often fill the void created by vast amounts of time humans spend on cellphones and electronic devices. With the advent of industry and technology, dogs help us bond with nature. Dogs also alert us to—and save us from—danger. Through their heightened sense of smell, dogs can sense life-threatening health issues.
Many of us have integrated dogs into our lives, homes, and workplaces. Take your Dog to Work Day is Friday, June 26, 2020. National Dog Day is celebrated two months later—August 26, 2020. This year’s McCracken County Standard Flower Show salutes “Man’s (and Woman’s) Best Friend,” THE DOG. Each Design Class features a quality, item or saying commonly associated with canines.
DESIGN DIVISION RULES
Master Gardeners hosted our first McCracken County Fair Standard Flower Show in 1998. In 2018 we added design classes where the public—instead of accredited NGC flower show judges—decided the winners. In this, our 22nd year, we again offer a combination of classes—some evaluated by NGC judges using NGC standards—and others designated as “NON-JUDGED” evaluated by the public. Exhibits in NON-JUDGED classes will NOT be judged by NGC standards, and will NOT be eligible for traditional ribbons and associated premiums. Instead, entries in four NON-JUDGED classes are ELIGIBLE for one of three rosettes and associated prize money based on public voting.
1. Designer must register in advance with Design Consultant for each class entered. Registration is due by June 15, 2020. Any designer unable to fulfill his/her assignment accepts responsibility for timely finding his/her replacement and notifying Design Consultant of appropriate class.
2. NGC Exhibit Policies; plant material permitted and forbidden; as well as rules for Design Types and Table Designs are found in “2017 Edition of the NGC Handbook for Flower Shows,” Chapter 7, Exhibiting in the Design Division, a copy of which has been placed “on reserve” at the McCracken County Extension Office. Each entrant is strongly encouraged to review this material. Entire Handbook may be purchased from NGC, 4401 Magnolia Ave., St. Louis, MO 63110, 314-776-7574, for $25.
3. Design entered in competition must be work of one Exhibitor whose name must appear on entry card. Sole exception is Class 7-functional table, a Club Competition with entry being made solely in Club name.
4. Fresh plant material must not be treated in any manner. Plant material treated to alter its exterior appearance may be used only in its dried state.
5. Plant material used in designs need not be grown by Exhibitor unless required by Schedule. No artificial flowers, foliage, fruits or vegetables permitted in Design Division.
6. Exhibitor may enter as many Classes in Design Division as desired unless Schedule limits number of entries. Exhibitor is allowed only one exhibit per class.
7. Each design must include some plant material. ALL plant material used in design must be identified on 3” x 5” card placed with entry tag.
8. Designer has freedom to choose traditional or creative design styles with any design unless restricted by Schedule. Designs previously entered in NGC Standard Flower Show are prohibited. Designer is on his/her honor that design being entered has not been previously entered or judged in NGC Standard Flower Show.
9. Scale of Points for Design is found on page 130 in “2017 Edition of the NGC Handbook for Flower Shows,” a copy of which has been placed “on reserve” at McCracken County Extension Office.
10. Landscapes or scenes are not permitted in Design Division. Please refer to Chapter 7, pages 80-81 of “2017 Edition of the NGC Handbook for Flower Shows,” for items permitted in all design classes unless prohibited by Schedule or law. Copy of chapter “on reserve” at McCracken County Extension Office.
11. Staging provided by Committee unless otherwise stated in Schedule.

Design Division Committee has limited number of staging panels (white and black) and reserves right to place staging panel behind any design for show uniformity.
ADULT DESIGN CLASSES JUDGED BY NGC-STANDARDS
CLASS 1 Best in Show Parallel 4 Entries JUDGED
Design consisting of three (3) or more groupings of plant material and optional components with strong parallel placement in single container and/or base.
Multiple containers/bases may be used if combined to appear as one unit.
Parallel direction may be vertical, horizontal or diagonal within allotted space.
Overall effect must appear parallel. Groupings need not be equidistant from each other.
Connective/s may be used at base of design.
Design Consultant: Betty Thompson betmac@brtc.net 270-559-3782
Staged on 30” tall table draped in black. Space allotted is 30” deep x 30” wide. Exhibitor may use own underlay and staging panel.

CLASS 2 Let Sleeping Dogs Lie Tapestry 4 Entries JUDGED
Creative solid-mass design with geometric closed silhouettes evoking a dog bed.
Volume of plant material dominates with other components optional.
May have some transparent/translucent/diaphanous components.
Imaginative design techniques and applications must be used such as pillowing, pave, color blocking, weaving, etc.
Inner space achieved by juxtaposing colors, textures and forms.
Design Consultant: Betty Thompson betmac@brtc.net 270-559-3782
Staged on 30” tall table draped in black. Space allotted is 30” deep x 30” wide. Exhibitor may use own underlay and staging panel.

CLASS 3 Fido Ate My Homework Transparency Design 4 Entries JUDGED
Family pets are occasionally blamed for missing school assignments. This class requires a creative design with see-through elements (translucent, diaphanous, grid-like materials, etc.) integral to the design which permit some components to be viewed through others.
Design Consultant: Brenda Johnson slwl4@hughes.net 270-210-1760
Design will hang in white frame with interior height of 34.5” x width of 22.5” provided by Committee. Exhibitor may use own underlay and staging panel.

CLASS 4 Lady & The Tramp In Style of Stretch Design 4 Entries JUDGED
This class pays homage to the classic 1955 Disney film “Lady & The Tramp” and its 2019 update as a live action movie in which romance blossoms when a street-wise stray shows a pampered Cocker Spaniel his side of town. Designers will bring to life—in flowers—the iconic scene of the two four-legged stars sharing a meal of spaghetti and meatballs.
Creative Design in two units, one smaller than other, having prominent component connecting two units and referred to as “stretch component.”
Length and strength of stretch component must be appropriate to other components and to its prominent role in Stretch Design.
“Stretch component” may extend in any direction—diagonal, vertical or horizontal—and may minimally extend beyond units.
Stretch component must be imaginative and appear to create dynamic tension between two units.
Units should follow directional movement of stretch component to enhance tension as smaller unit is placed to appear to have forcefully pulled away from larger unit.
Tension greatly diminished if two units are created with strong vertical emphasis and stretch component is placed diagonally or horizontally between them.
Overall design concept gives appearance of bond between two units through placement of units, strength of coiled or stretched connective, and some repetition of forms, colors, textures, etc., in second unit.
Displayed best without staging panel as there would always be large area void of design before a rectangular background. Space allotted is 30” deep by 30” wide. Design will be set against black fabric “wall.” Exhibitor may use own underlay.
Design Consultant: Anne McNeilly amcneilly@comcast.net 270-217-5690

Each Exhibitor will mount entry with “T” pins to foam core in 11” x 14” picture frame provided by Committee. Frames will be hung on wall. No collar may exceed 9” x 1.5”.
Design Consultant: Anne McNeilly amcneilly@comcast.net 270-217-5690

Design Consultant: Carol Ullerich carolullerich123@gmail.com 270-564-7592

Table planned and set for actual service of picnic fare for master and dog dining together. Convenience and sense of order must prevail. Exhibit must include decorative unit (floral design, with or without candles or other accessories; container-grown plant alone is NOT “design”). Typical table would include dishes, beverage container/s, covering/s and napkins for humans with all components coordinated and balanced within allotted space. Appropriate items for human and dog diners will test designer’s creativity. Tablecloth may hang no more than 20” from top of table.
Exhibit must be placed on standard-size card table PROVIDED BY EXHIBITOR.
Design Consultant: Brenda Johnson slwl4@hughes.net 270-210-1760

ADULT DESIGN CLASSES EVALUATED BY PUBLIC (NON-JUDGED)
CLASS 8 Scout’s Journey Designer’s Choice 4 Entries PUBLIC VOTE
“Scout” is the 7-year-old golden retriever who appears in television ads for Weathertech, a car accessory company. In 2019, Scout was diagnosed with a tumor on his heart. Given one month to live, Scout’s owner refused to put him down and whisked him to the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine where an aggressive treatment of chemotherapy and radiation nearly eradicated the cancer. Dubbed “Lucky Dog,” Scout’s story was profiled in a 2020 Super Bowl commercial seeking donations to the veterinary school that saved the family pet’s life, noting advances in pet health care may ultimately impact human health care. The ad opens with Scout running along the beach carrying “a cool stick” in his mouth.
Design of any type featuring “a cool stick” provided by Exhibitor. Space allotted is 30” deep x 30” wide. Design will be set against black sheet creating fabric “wall.” Exhibitor may use own underlay.
