4-H Project Evaluation & Showcase Event

  • Thursday, August 18, 2022, 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM

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.

What projects are accepted?

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).

How do I enter a project?

How are projects evaluated?

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:

  • Excellent (blue)
  • Good (red)
  • Worthy/Fair (white)
  • Participation/No Award (green)

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.

Where will the projects be displayed?

All projects will be virtually displayed on the CCE 4-H website: Cornell Cooperative Extension | Rockland County 4-H Project Showcase (rocklandcce.org).

Is there opportunity for advancement?

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).
