Competitive Teams

Competitive teams are open to any interested 4th - 12th grader. These are competitive events where youth will attend weekly practices learning various skills that will then be put to the test at a district or state competition. There is no cost associated for joining any of our judging teams. High school teams that place first will be eligible to compete at the national level! For more information call or email the office!

  • Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging: 4-H'ers learn about cotton as an agriculture commodity in our state as well as to promote cotton through commercials or advertisements.  4-H'ers gain skills in making rational decisions when purchasing goods and services while maximizing resources.  
  • Poultry Judging: This is an evaluation event where students learn and understand standards used in poultry and egg production and marketing. 4-H'ers will learn to apply the standards in a realistic decision-making situation.
