Judging Teams & Competitions

Consumer Judging Team

Joining the 4-H Consumer Judging Team is a great way for you to learn how to make smart choices when buying things that you need! During the practices, you will learn to “shop” for specific items. You will also learn about the importance of cotton and talk about it in a commercial or public service announcement!

W.H.E.P. (Wildlife Habitat Education Program)

Members of the 4-H W.H.E.P. Team will learn about animals that live in nature and what they need to survive such as food and shelter.  4-H W.H.E.P. Team members will compete at the Georgia 4-H state wildlife contest in October to see who knows the most about wildlife management practices! To get ready for the contest, team members must practice.

Certified UGA volunteer, Mr. Donald Weitzel will coach the team.    

Forestry Judging Team  

Forestry Judging Team is a competitive Judging Contest where 4-H'ers 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 complete saw timber volume estimations. FFD provides an opportunity for youth to gain a better appreciation for our local forest resources and how they contribute to our economy and quality of life.

Poultry Judging Team


If you are you looking to be part of an exciting 4-H activity, join our Poultry & Egg Science Team! At the team practices, you will learn how to judge and handle live chickens and grade eggs (like the ones you see in the grocery store)! You will also compete in a contest with other 4-H’ers at the Henry County Extension facility in McDonough! The team is limited to 13 4-H’ers in the 5th - 12th grades.


Project S.A.F.E. (Shooting Awareness, Fun and Education) is a curriculum based and designed to assist young people in personal development, establish a personal environmental ethic and explore life-long vocational and avocational activities.
