4-H clover Judging 4-H at Minnesota county fairs

See this page in: English

Minnesota 4-H depends on the skills, talents and dedication of hundreds of adults who judge 4-H projects at county fairs across Minnesota.

If you are (or have recently been) active as a 4-H judge in Minnesota you are likely included in our database of county fair judges which means that you can log in to 4HOnline to view/edit your contact and profile information as well as participate in an online training designed especially for county fair judges.

To access your 4HOnline profile and/or take the training, see the user guide.

Becoming a judge

If you are new to judging, or if you haven't judged in a while, please give us some information about what and where you'd like to judge.

Please fill out this online survey

We will add your information to our 4HOnline judges database, which staff access to find judges for projects at county fairs.
