What is judging? Judging is an every-day activity. A person judges every time a choice is made whether it is for food, clothing, home furnishings or entertainment. In 4-H club work, judging is simply a matter of selecting one article or product over another because of certain qualities. In order that club girls may learn to choose wisely, they need practice in making comparisons and in recognizing excellent qualities. (See more in text.)
