The practical projects include brooding, rearing, laying flocks, broiler, turkey and duck projects. These are meat and egg projects which place emphasis on how to do things. The Standard Breeders project is a science project which emphasizes the why of things using areas such as genetics, physiology, embryology, nutrition and health.

Teen leaders and teen assistants are selected to work at the State fair Exhibit based on their outstanding attitudes and accomplishments at the county level.
