2022 Clermont County 4-H Project Requirements

General Project Judging Checklist

Hello 4-Her!  You can "make your best, better" during pre-fair judging by following a few simple suggestions:

Between Now & General Project Judging

  • Review project requirements and your book (the judges received the requirements and are looking to make sure you completed what is required).
  • Plan what you are taking to judging (exhibit / display) – do not wait until the last minute to put it together!
  • Practice what you will say during the interview with the judge- be ready to share what you have done this year in 4-H
  • Complete your project book in a neat and orderly fashion

The Night Before Judging! What do I need to do to be ready to go?

  • Review your exhibit / display
  • Gather everything you need for judging day and put it by the door so you won't forget anything
  • Review the important facts in your project book
  • Review the important facts about 4-H for tie breaker questions
  • Get plenty of sleep!

It's General Project Judging Day! Now what?

  • Eat a healthy meal
  • Be on time for judging (plan to arrive 15 minutes early)
  • Be ready to share what you have learned during this project – you’ll have 5-10 minutes to share with the judge what you have learned
