Sumter County 4-H participates in Cotton Boll Consumer Judging

PERRY — Cotton Boll & Consumer Judging is a two-part event designed to increase 4-H’ers understanding of cotton as an agricultural commodity and encourage 4-H’ers to act as responsible, consumer-citizens who make knowledgeable decisions when purchasing goods and services. The Cotton Boll portion of the competition requires participants to communicate the importance of cotton through a public service announcement or commercial. In the Consumer Judging portion of the competition, participants are required to judge four classes of products to decide which products best fit the individual needs of a given consumer. Participants must demonstrate their reasoning for choices by providing oral explanations on one class to a panel of judges.
Sumter County 4-H Cotton Boll Consumer Judging Senior team members were Angelina Reyes and Anjum Alam. Junior team members were Kamari Deriso, Shazia Alam, Kanorris Reddick, Rosa Reyes and Nakyhia Reddick. The team competed in Perry at the Georgia  National Fairgrounds and AgriCenter on Nov. 10. Cotton Boll & Consumer Judging is only one of many activities offered through Sumter County  4-H.  Contact Sumter County Extension Office at 229-924-4476 or visit http://www.ugaextension.com/sumter/4H/index.html to learn how you can become involved in 4-H.
