4-H Judging Teams

Colquitt County offers the following judging teams in which students may participate in learning activities and competitive events.


Cotton Boll Consumer Judging - In consumer judging students learn to compare the quality and price of items to make a wise consumer choice for a given situation. Practices for this competitive event begin in mid-September to prepare for the competition in November. Students meet weekly at the 4-H office to learn about the items, situations, and how to give an oral justification for their comparison.


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 April competition will begin in March.
