4-H Judging Competition Opportunties

Do you have an interest in poultry production? 4-H Poultry Judging maybe the competition for you. 4-H Poultry Judging is not a 4-H Presentation or Demonstration Event; it is classified as a 4-H Activity. A poultry judging team is composed of 3 or 4 members from a county. The combined scores of the 3 high team members will be counted as the team score. The team judges each of the following divisions: DIVISION I: Egg Production Past Production Hens, DIVISION II: Market Poultry - Ready to Cook and Parts Identification, DIVISION III: Eggs: Interior, Exterior and Broken out Eggs.

Are you a plant geek? Do you love gardening, plant identification? If so the Horticulture Judging and Identification Contest is a great way to introduce yourself to the very cool stories that plants are hoping to tell. This contest is a training program concerned with teaching youth to recognize and identify some of the most important horticultural crops, to learn criteria influencing quality and to be able to answer questions and solve problems relating to the art and science of horticulture. There are three portions of the test, including knowledge, judging and identification.

Wilkes County 4-H is seeking youth who are interested in competing in the following age categories 4-H junior (ages 9-13) or senior (ages 14-18) in either Poultry or Horticulture Judging Contests. Participants will be trained in the curriculums over the period of time prior to the contests. Kathy Bunton, Extension Area Specialized Poultry Agent coaches the Poultry Judging team. Dr.Bill Hanlin, Wilkes Extension Director, Horticulture specialist leads the Horticulture team. Both contests are held on the Campus of North Carolina State University. Youth participating in the contests will have the opportunity to tour the campus. The Poultry Judging Contest and Horticulture Judging contest are state level competitions with the possibility of moving on to national competition. Poultry judging practice will begin Thursday February 23 at 6:00pm at the Wilkes Cooperative Extension Office. Horticulture Judging will begin Thursday March1 at 4:00 pm also at the extension office. If you are interested in being a part of these exciting opportunities please contact the Wilkes Cooperative Extension Office to enroll as a 4-H’er and learn more about joining these 4-H Judging Teams prior to their first meetings at (336) 651-7331.
