On Saturday, January 21, participants will bring their prepared food item, place setting, centerpiece, etc. to the contest. The Extension office will schedule a time for each 4-H participant to meet with a contest judge.  Judges will ask questions about the recipe, menu, and prepared dish and then sample a taste of the foods entry.

After meeting with a judge, participants my test their knowledge in the Foods and Nutrition Judging Contest. There will also be opportunities for members to watch a foods demonstration and participate in a shopping cart challenge! This is always a fun-filled and educational event!
