4-H Project Judging Results

We’re happy to provide you with judging results, and explain a little bit about the next step…

Results of Foods and Special Interest Project judging are posted online as follows:

WHAT’S NEXT? We want to recognize YOU!

If your member is listed on the results pages as having been recognized with a Superior, Honorable Mention or Ohio State Fair selection, you need to mark your calendar for the 2022 Licking County 4-H Style Revue and Recognition Event, which will be held on Thursday, July 21st at 6:30 p.m. in the Reese Center Auditorium on the Newark Campus of The Ohio State University.

The Licking County 4-H Style Revue and Recognition Event will begin with a Style Revue, which allows our CLOTHING project members to model their project work and complete the final stage of their project awards selection, and it is at that time that those youth receiving Superior awards will be announced. A brief intermission will take place just prior to the recognition portion of our evening program, which is described below…

As we begin recognition, we will call forward on to the stage all SPECIAL INTEREST project members who have received a Superior, Honorable Mention, or have been selected to represent Licking County during Ohio State Fair project judging. Each name included in the linked list will be recognized on stage and receive their respective ribbon or rosette. We will also announce the three youth chosen to receive Best of Show Awards for their Special Interest projects.

Following Special Interest Projects, FOODS project members receiving Superior, Honorable Mention, or selection to represent Licking County during Ohio State Fair project judging will be called to the stage to be recognized. It is at that time that we will also announce the Best of Show recipient among Foods project members, those members being selected for Best Display in the Junior and Senior Divisions, and name the Budding Star award recipients (beginner level members showing great promise for their work).

Following Foods Projects, it’s them time to recognize our CLOTHING project members! We will call back to the stage those members receiving Honorable Mention and Ohio State Fair selection, as well as those youth receiving special awards such as Junior or Senior Construction Awards, Wool Award (best garment constructed with wool), and Budding Star Awards (beginner level members showing great promise for their work).

It’s wonderful night of recognition, and you won’t want to miss it! Please come…

 

SPECIAL NOTE: OHIO STATE FAIR REPRESENTATIVES

If you are a member noted as being selected to move on to the Ohio State Fair for project judging award opportunities, please know that packets with all the information and materials you need are being placed in the mail from our office on Thursday, July 14th. When you receive your packet, look through it carefully and reach out with any questions. Please know that you may also VIEW Ohio State Fair information and materials (like those included in your packet) online at any time by following this link: https://ohio4h.org/nonlivestockguidebook. This will allow you to see dates, times, locations, etc.  (Clothing members will receive their packets at the conclusion of the Style Revue awards announcement.)

If you find that you are unable to participate in the designated Ohio State Fair judging event for which you have been selected, please contact Adrienne (anderson.1410@osu.edu) or Lisa (mccutcheon.46@osu.edu) at the Extension Office right away – as there is likely an alternate that we can contact to offer them the position to attend…

Congratulations to all our members who participated in interview judging!

We look forward to seeing many of you at the Style Revue and Recognition Event next Thursday!

Project Judging Information and Reminders

Licking County 4-H Project Judging will take place on Tuesday, July 12, 2022 at CTEC in Newark (150 Price Rd). Please review the following information so you know what to expect and what to bring to judging.

General Information:

  • ALL members with a Clothing, Food, or Special Interest project who plan to be judged should have scheduled a judging time already. If you have not done so, reach out to Adrienne at anderson.1410@osu.edu to see what options are still available.
  • Please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled judging time. This will allow you to get checked in, fill in the top portion of your scoresheet, and have a few minutes to prepare yourself for judging. Most of our judges have a very full schedule so being on time and ready for your appointment will help us to keep everyone on schedule.
  • ALL project members must bring their completed project book to judging. The only exception are those taking a self-determined project or a master level project (i.e. Leadership Master, Woodworking Master, etc.). Those members are encourage to use the printable project guides available online but are not required to do so. All members should also have some form of visual or other supporting materials with their project. Please review the Licking County 4-H Project Requirements to ensure you have all necessary parts of your project for judging.
  • When you arrive at CTEC, please enter through Entrance 4. You can then enter through the doors next to the preschool. When you arrive to the rotunda, please check in at the table with a 4-H Committee member. Please then have a seat and wait for your judging appointment.
  • When you hear your name called, please bring your things to the judging area. If you need help carrying your project, please let us know so that we can assist you. Parents/guardians will NOT be allowed in the judging area.
  • ALL items a member brings must be able to be carried/moved into the judging area. Judges will not have the time to leave the judging area to view projects outside or in vehicles. If you are unable to carry/move your project into the judging area, then photos or a video of the project must suffice.
  • We request that members only bring 1-2 people with them to judging. Limiting the number of people in the waiting area helps reduce crowding and helps with the noise level when we are calling the names of members for their judging appointment.
  • Members will receive a copy of their scoresheet from the judge once their interview is complete. Members will receive their project grade at that time. No other awards/honors will be announced during the judging process. Results will be posted to the website on the Awards, Results, and Recognition page in the days following project judging. All members receiving a Superior, Honorable Mention, State Fair Representative or any specialty awards will be recognized at the Licking County 4-H Style Revue and Achievement Night on Thursday, July 21, 2022 at 6:30pm at the Reese Center on the Ohio State Newark and COTC Campus.

Project Specific Information:

  • SHOOTING SPORTS: Guns, bows, arrows, ammunition, and firearms of any kind are not permitted during judging. Participants may not use any of these items or three – dimensional replicas of these items as a part of any display. Displays also may not include any part of an arrow longer than 6 inches. Displays may not include any ‘loaded’ ammunition. Any shells or casings must be open so that a visual examination can show that there is no powder in ammunition (the caps must be either absent or expended).
  • FOODS AND NUTRITION: Please review the Licking County 4-H Project Requirements for more details.
    • All members should bring their project book, project portfolio, table setting, and food item.
    • Member should be able to set up their table setting and food item on their own.
    • Judges are not required to sample the food item, but may do so at their discretion.
  • CLOTHING: Please review the Licking County 4-H Project Requirements for more details.
    • All members should bring their project book, clothing item(s), pattern (if applicable), and any other supporting materials they may have.
    • Members must bring a photo of them wearing their outfit to judging. This will be attached to the scoresheet and will be used by the judges when making final selections at the Style Revue.
    • There will be a dressing room available for members to change into their garments. Members are encouraged to arrive earlier than 15 minutes to their appointment to allow time for them to change.
    • If a member is nominated for the Construction Award or Wool Award, once they leave the judging area they should change out of their outfit and bring the garments they made to Adrienne to hold for the day. The judges will select the Junior and Senior Construction Award winners and the Wool Award winner at the end of the judging day. Members may return to judging to pick up their garments from 3:00-4:30pm or Adrienne will bring the garments back to the Extension Office and they can be picked up there during normal business hours.
    • Members must model their outfit at the Licking County 4-H Style Revue and Achievement Night on Thursday, July 21st in order to be eligible for any award beyond a Superior. Members must complete the Modeling Narrative Survey by visiting go.osu.edu/4HModelingSurvey. The information from the survey will be compiled into a narrative that will be read while the member is modeling their outfit. Please complete the modeling narrative by July 12th. If a member will not be attending the Style Revue, please let Adrienne know so that they are not included in the program.
