4-H in Kandiyohi County

  • SW Regional Consumer Decision Judging Contest
    What is Consumer Decision Judging? Seldom a day goes by that you do not have decisions to make. When you buy groceries, you must constantly choose between brands while considering quality, size, and cost in making a purchase. The 4-H Consumer Decision Judging program provides a venue for youth to learn and practice the life skill of decision making. In 4-H, judging is essentially a matter of comparing four similar items and deciding which is better and why. The goal of the Consumer Decision Judging program is to teach 4-H members how to make wise consumer choices. Class scenarios involve items of personal care, entertainment & leisure, clothing & textiles, consumerism & personal finance or nutrition.
