Clay County Consumer Judging Results

Making decisions about what to purchase is an everyday activity that Clay County 4-Hers explored in a local “Consumer Judging” event on July 31 at Clay County’s Achievement Fair hosted by ISU Extension and Outreach 4-H Youth Program. 

4-Hers tested their skills weighing factors such as time, energy, price, quality and need.  They were challenged with five different consumer buying stations of which they needed to decide the importance of each of these factors and then rank four products at each station. 

From breakfast cereals, home improvement color schemes to woodworking the Consumer Judging purchases challenged 32 youth who judged five classes comparing four selected products in each category using provided criteria. 

The top Junior Division and top Intermediate/Senior Division Clay County 4-Hers were awarded for their consumer judging ability and will advance to the District Competition held during the Clay County Fair. Teams will be formed of the 1st – 4th place winners who will compete at the District 4-H Consumer Judging Contest to be held during the Clay County Fair, September 15 in the 4-H Exhibit Building on the Clay County Fairgrounds.

1st- 4th place winners for the Junior Division include: Haley Schwenneker, Carli Bryan, Natalie Jacobson, and Nathan Pullen.

1st–4th place winners for the Intermediate/Senior Division include: Brandt Roskens, Madison Schwenneker, Jordan Hansen, and Elizabeth Glover.
