Adults interested in judging county and state 4-H projects, including live animal shows, static exhibits, and contests need to complete the Judges Registration. By completing the judges registration online process, you are agreeing to be screened according to the 4-H Youth Safety Policy. Once the screening process is complete, registration information will be supplied to county Extension offices and State Fair 4-H superintendents. Those interested in hiring you to judge will contact you directly.

Judges must be registered by September 30, 2018 in order to be considered for the 2019 fair season.
