Judging is a great way to feel a sense of accomplishment and know your voice is being heard!

Whether you’re completely new to judging or already have a grasp of the basics, the Judging Project will help turn you into a competent member of any judging panel.

In this project, you’ll learn:

  • The positive and negative attributes of a wide variety of animals and objects
  • How to make decisions and support those decisions with solid reasoning
  • How to communicate your ideas clearly
  • How to choose commodities based on their quality
