Cotton is used for clothing, goods, and services to meet the needs and reflect lifestyles of eveyone. Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging gives youth an understanding of the importance cotton plays in Georgia and teaches them to be responsible consumers when purchasing goods and services.

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. This is a competitive judging event where 4-H members will judge seven classes, complete a test, and present one set of oral reasons. This contest teaches 4-H’ers about the poultry industry including eggs, live birds, ready to cook chicken, and parts of chicken. Poultry Judging also helps youth develop more self-confidence through speaking in front of judges and being part of a team.
This contest is held each year in the spring. Practices will be held after school at the Lanier County Extension Office starting near the end of February and continue until the contest in April.
Practice and contest dates are listed in the 4-H Year at a Glance. Check for more information each spring when you return from school after the holiday break!
