4-H Flipgrid Virtual Judging

For 2020, Erie County 4-H project judging will take place virtually on a platform called Flipgrid.

This will replace the in-person elements in the following areas: Clothing and Textiles Judging, Food and Nutrition Judging, Stills/Family Living Judging, Dog Interviews and Show, Creative Writing Judging, Vegetable Judging, Livestock/Horse Skillathon and Interview, Cloverbud Sharing, and the Public Speaking Contest. For each project they are enrolled in, members will submit a 3-10 minute video about their project and what they learned. Video submissions must be completed by July 27, with the exception of Health and Safety Speaking which is due July 3rd.

Please carefully review these documents before starting.

A brief YouTube tutorial about how to use Flipgrid:  -  We recommend you watch this tutorial before getting started

We know this isn’t the 4-H project judging everyone is used to, but we are excited for this unique opportunity for our members to be creative in how they present their projects and to learn valuable skills for today’s digital world. The extension staff is here to help you navigate this process. If you are unable to complete a Flipgrid Video, you must contact the extension office by July 20 to schedule an alternative time to present to a key leader by August 1. However, please understand that in order to be eligible for county awards (placings, livestock premier exhibitor, etc.) you must utilize Flipgrid. Livestock/horse exhibitors must complete a Flipgrid or present to a key leader to be eligible for fair competition.

Have fun and be creative! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
