SDSU Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program helps young people to reach their full potential as competent, confident leaders of character who contribute and are connected to their communities.

In 4-H, youth design and participate in their own projects and related activities. This unique learn-by-doing model teaches essential skills that youth will use throughout their lives. Whether a young person builds a rocket, raises a companion pet, or plants vegetables, 4-H gives youth the skills they need to thrive and succeed.

4-H encourages all members to "make the best better." An essential role of volunteer judges is to provide feedback to exhibitors on how projects could or should be improved, allowing members to expand their knowledge in a project area.

Use this video as a resource to better understand the Danish system of judging, which compares an exhibit to the ideal standards.
