Program Description:

 

Every day you make countless decisions that require the use of your evaluation skills. You decide what to eat, what to wear, what picture to post on Instagram, and the list goes on and on. The process you use to make these and other decisions is what judging can help you to develop. Become a better, more efficient decision maker by keenly observing, analyzing and comparing various animals or items in a class. Test your memory, cultivate your communication skills and practice organizing your thoughts while giving oral reasons. Plus, vie for amazing opportunities to travel and compete with fellow 4-H members in national and international judging contests that’ll open your eyes to agriculture around the world.
