Stearns Fair Judging Assistants- Online Sign-up Available

Adult volunteers & Youth Leaders are needed each year to work with the judges at County Fair, writing the placing on the exhibit cards and attractively arranging them.  This is an excellent opportunity to learn "first hand" how the exhibits are evaluated.  Please register BY JUNE 15th.

Judging starts at 2:00 p.m. and goes until 7:00 p.m. with a break for supper at 4:30.  Half-day shifts are also available.

NEW this year:  All-day Judges Assistants will be able to have their exhibits judged early from 1:00-2:00, before judging open up to all 4-H’ers. (This is ONLY offered to judges assistants working BOTH shifts AND those who have taken the 12:30 training.)  Half-day assistants or those who prefer not to be judged early will be able to have their projects judged first (after 2pm) or when there is a slow time during judging.

Judges Assistants must attend a mandatory orientation:  

  • 12:30 p.m. for ALL DAY assistants who wish to have their projects judged early
  • 1:40 p.m. for first shift assistants or all-day assistants who do not wish to be judged early
  • 4:40 p.m. for second shift assistants


Also NEW THIS YEAR: we are using an online sign-up process for Judges Assistant sign-up!

It’s easy!  Go to:, select the shift(s) you are volunteering for, click “Submit and Sign Up” at the bottom of the page and complete the process.  You do not need to create an account to sign up for a shift!
