    If possible add more to your board. Use more eye-catching colors, bolder prints and eye-grabbers. This may be sparkling paper or interesting facts. If you are doing a project on dogs then put your information on your board on bone shaped paper. Cute titles are always a plus. Also a nice bold print is good. Judges can read your board and find out more about your topic. But whatever you do don't use yellow ink. It will definitely cost you points.

    Once you are done with your board work on your floor display. This is key. The floor display will make your board stand out from the rest. It can be stuffed animals, a fish tank or a diorama of a battle scene. Whatever it is make sure it's clean, neat, and legal. You are not allowed to use live animals or plants in your display. Lastly don't use baked goods and pass them out during your demonstration. For one you aren't allowed to and it isn't safe. It's fine for classroom demonstrations but not DPA.

You will want to know it very well so read it thoroughly and if you can try to memorize it. It should flow well and all sentences should agree. Also the statements should be true. You would look awful stupid saying the sky is green.
