The Rockland County 4-H Project Showcase is an opportunity for 4-H members to exhibit their unique talents and skills and receive feedback for improvement.
Any project you can think of can be entered in the showcase, as long as it was created in the current 4-H year (October 1 - September 30).
All 4-H Projects for youth ages 8+ are evaluated based on the Danish System of Judging. The Danish System is a method of evaluating entries or exhibits relative to an ideal for the exhibitor’s grade level and experience. Awards are broken down into four categories:
The evaluators take into consideration the “process” or what a 4-H’er has learned through their project, not just the end product. Perfection is not the goal of 4-H, youth development is. Cloverbud Projects (ages 5-7) are not evaluated, but the youth are recognized for their skills and hard work.
All projects will be virtually displayed on the CCE 4-H website: Cornell Cooperative Extension | Rockland County 4-H Project Showcase (rocklandcce.org).
Yes! Selected projects are eligible for evaluation and exhibition at the New York State 4-H Fair in Syracuse, NY. For details, visit Cornell Cooperative Extension | NYS 4-H Fair (rocklandcce.org).
