Judges' positive feedback motivate young exhibitors

Published Sep. 9, 2005

Young people who are in kindergarten through 12th grade have two good reasons to exhibit their work in Youth World at the Citrus County Fair: money and positive feedback from the judges.

Judging is done on the Danish System and every entry will receive a ribbon. Premiums will be paid as follows: Blue $5, Red $3, White $1.

Best of Show rosettes will be given to the best item in each class at the discretion of the judges. Top of Section rosettes will receive $10. Honorable mention will receive ribbons.

Exhibitors may picked up their ribbon money in Youth World during fair hours between Thursday and March 25. Money not claimed by April 13 will be forfeited.

Youths who want to be present during the judging between 9:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. will be able to review the exhibit item with the judge, discuss project achievement and ask questions of the judge.

This will help them to receive immediate positive feedback and to develop self-confidence in their work.
