Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging Team - Grades 4-12

Join NOW! Virtual team practices will begin soon! Call or email to register.

Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging is a competitive judging contest where 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.

The contest is made up of two competition areas: judging classes and advertisements/commercials.
4-H’ers are required to judge four classes of consumer items or services. Each class contains four similar items and has an accompanying situation statement. This statement describes a consumer and gives the needs to be considered when he/she makes a decision to purchase the item. Factors influencing these needs may include the person’s age, gender, available money, lifestyles, school or job status, preferences or other requirements that depend on the item given and the individual in the situation.

This year, we will judge vending machine snacks, fitness center membership, pajama pants and smart watches. Hall County Extension is the host of an area contest scheduled for Tuesday, November 3.
