Judging Teams

Cotton Boll & Consumer Judging - This is a great learning experience to help you become wise shoppers. This year we are studying granola/breakfast bars, bath robes, sleeping bags and wearable technology. You also get to create 90 second PSA promoting cotton. This judging team is lots of fun! Come join us!

Practice begins September 7th from 3:45-5:00 pm at the office. 

Poultry Judging - In poultry judging students will learn how to examine and grade eggs for exterior quality, as well as broken out and candling for internal quality. Students will learn to identify the butcher cuts of ready to cook poultry as well as how to grade ready to cook meats. They will also learn to identify the physical characteristics which indicate that a hen is a quality producer of eggs.

Practices for this May competition will begin in February 2018.

Forestry Judging - In 4-H forestry judging students learn about one of Georgia's most valuable resources. Participants learn to identify trees, insects, and diseases. They also participate in compass and pacing activities and learn how to estimate volume of timber harvest. Workshops are held at the 4-H office  for this September competition.
