2019 Project Judging Results

Results for the 2019 Special Interest and Food Project Judging have been posted here.  Clothing Project results will be posted after the results are announced at the Style Revue and Awards Night. Members who received a Superior, Honorable Mention, or State Fair Representative will be recognized at the 2019 Style Revue and Awards Night on Thursday, July 18th at the Reese Center at the OSU Newark/COTC Campus. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the modeling portion of the clothing judging. The awards recognition portion of the program will follow the style revue.

Members who were selected as a state fair representative will receive a packet of information by mail. Packets went in the mail Friday. If you do not receive your packet, please contact the Extension Office to have a new packet made. If you cannot participate in your project’s judging at the Ohio State Fair, please contact the Extension Office at 740.670.5315 immediately to let us know that you cannot attend. This will allow us to contact the project member who was selected as the alternate and offer that member the opportunity to participate in the project judging at the Ohio State Fair.

We are so proud of all of the hard work that our project members have exhibited throughout the judging process. Congratulations to all of our members!
