2024 General Project Judging Registration

General Project Judging registration is now available!

General Project Judging consists of a one-on-one interview with a project judge.  Members will have 15 minutes to share their 4-H project with a judge, answer a few questions and receive feedback regarding his/her project.  Those who participate in General Project judging have an opportunity to receive awards for placing 1st – 5th and be selected to represent Clermont County at the Ohio State Fair.

There are two different links to register; one link is for projects being judged on Tuesday, July 9th and the other link is for projects being judged on Wednesday, July 10th . You will need to fill out the survey separately for each project you are bringing to pre-fair project judging.  Do not select the same time for more than one project and be sure to give yourself 15 minutes between interviews. The deadline to register is Monday, July 1.

Please use the links below to register for General Project Judging on Tuesday, July 9th and Wednesday, July 10th:

Pre-Judged Projects

The only projects that will be pre-judged are clothing & textile projects (including projects that do not require sewing), You Can Quilt!, Quilting the Best Better, and the Writer in You. These projects must be turned into the Extension Office by 11:00 a.m. on Wednesay, July 10th, for pre-judging.

Please bring clothing and textile projects to pre-judging, covered with a clear plastic bag (you can get these from a dry cleaner).  Attach a 5” x 5” swatch of the fabric, pattern, a 4” x 6” index card with your first and last name, age, project title and club name as well as a  photo of you in your garment to the outside of the bag. Your Style Revue Narration is also due this day.

Style Revue Narration

Creative writing project entries must be submitted on 8 ½ x 11 inch paper and typewritten. Stories should be double-spaced. The member’s full name, club and class name should appear on the cover page. The member’s last name and page number should appear on the bottom right corner of each page. Entries must be submitted in a 9” x 12” envelope, clearly marked with the youth’s name. Do not submit any folders, notebooks, or binders

Helpful tips and Project Judging Requirements

Members who want to receive credit for completing their project but do not want to participate in project judging, can review their project with their club advisor.  Projects must be reviewed by September 30, and will count for completion only.  Projects will not be eligible for county or state awards.  As as reminder, completing one project is a requirement for being a member in good standing.  Advisors can use the sheet below to assist with the project review.
