Architectural Block Construction (ABC)

This page is your source for information about the Architectural Block Construction (ABC) project, including forms. This isn’t called Lego’s because there are many types of interlocking blocks on the market and youth can use what ever block type they have available.

At the Kansas State Fair, the use of kits is prohibited. This is so youth are judged on their abilities to create from scratch, a block environment instead of following someone else’s instructions. Which could potentially turn this division into a money competition in my personal opinion. (Have you looked at the price of sets? If someone can afford a really complex set that puts others at a disadvantage before the judging has even started. Without sets in the mix there is a more level playing field. )

State Fair Forms (2021)

**** Posters, Display Boards, & Notebooks, No additional exhibit information is required; no manila envelope is needed for these exhibits.  All other exhibits need the additional information included in a manila envelope. All other exhibits need the additional information included in a manila envelope. Displays, notebooks and posters have been combined into one score sheet for all divisions. There will be no robotics challenge in 2019. The GPS/GIS program has been suspended and youth are encouraged to integrate GPS/GIS activities into other Kansas 4-H projects. An example would be using GPS/GIS in conjunction with the UAS program for mapping invasive species.
