Judging Teams

Jenkins County will offer the following teams in 2020


Forestry Judging


Forestry Field Day gets 4-H’ers outside learning fundamental skills that foresters use each day to manage our forests to provide wood products, wildlife habitats, clean air and scenic views. Youth learn to identify up to 70 tree species found in Georgia and learn about some of the most common insects and diseases that impact our forests. Pacing and compass skills are honed. These skills, along with using specialized forestry tools, allow youth to estimate timber volume. Practices start in the summer with the contest in early September.

District Contest

Poultry Judging

Poultry judging is an evaluation event in which students learn and understand standards used in poultry and egg production and marketing, and to apply the standards in a realistic decision-making situation. During the contest, participants judge both live specimens and market poultry, identify parts of birds already prepared for market, and evaluate eggs as to their quality and readiness for market. For at least one class, typically a live production class, participants are asked to justify their placing decisions through a set of oral reasons. Practices start in early March.

District Contest
April 16, 2020
