County Roundup seeking judges


GRAFTON—Taylor County 4-H is looking for visual presentation and cookie judges for the County Roundup.

The County Roundup is a competition for 4-Hers to compete at county and state levels. Every year, 4-Hers complete projects in various subjects, such as cooking, animals (small and large) and photography. Some 4-Hers also design projects for themselves.

Program Assistant with WVU Extension Service Taylor County Office, Shelia Westfall, said, “We are looking for interested community members to come and support the Taylor County 4-H.”

After completion, the projects are presented to be judged.

“This is an important event for the members, it gives them the opportunity to share the exciting projects they have been working on and to develop public-speaking skills,” said Westfall.

Westfall shared, as of right now, they need three more judges for the visual presentation, and two more for the cookie-tasting contest.

Judges do not need to know information about the subject they are judging. The judges will be given a score sheet to guide them through the assessment of the presentation, according to Westfall.

“It’s also a great chance for you to learn more about a wide variety of topics or sample some tasty cookies, while supporting the youth of Taylor County,” said Westfall.

The County Roundup will take place on April 6, at the Taylor County Middle School. For more information, or individuals interested in becoming a judge, contact Shelia Westfall, at 304-265-3303.
