Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging

It also provides experience in organizing thoughts and defending decisions with oral reasons. In this contest, 4-H'ers learn to rank articles or products over others based on standards and quality, 4-H'ers will evaluate consumer items and tell why they think one is better than the other.
