FortyCloverbud, Junior, Intermediate and Senior 4-H members took part in the virtual Regional 4-H Judging Competition on Saturday May 29, 2021! This year, the six qualifying Regional 4-H Judging competitions were combined into one large-scale virtual event, hosted by 4-H Saskatchewan, with the assistance of the regional organizing committees.
Classes for the virtual event included: Market Steers, Breeding Heifers, Breeding Ewes, Tame Pasture Health, Dairy Cows, and a Mystery Class consisting of Bull Sale Photography. Competitors attended an orientation session with facilitators Kalynne Martin (North West Regional 4-H Specialist) and Melodi Hawkesford-Lee (South East Regional 4-H Specialist), where they learned how to use the programs required to view the classes online and enter their scores in a virtual scoresheet.
Throughout the day, members judged the seven classes, paying careful attention to the characteristics and preferences shared by the following expert judges: Alicia Sopatyk – Market Steers; Erika Easton – Breeding Heifers; Jo Walker – Breeding Ewes; Etienne Shupena-Soulodre – Tame Pasture Health; Michael Flaman – Dairy Cows; and Sadie Anwender – Mystery Class (Bull Sale Photography).
Thank you to our expert judges, many of whom were past 4-H members who have been through the judging program. Another thank you goes out to the original Regional Judging committees from the six qualifying locations for each finding a judge.
Thank you to the Christensen family for sending in photos they took during the day!

Provincial Judging Teams
Below is a list of the Regional Teams that will be advancing to Provincial 4-H Judging, which is an in-person event, held August 21 & 22, 2021 in Lloydminster.
Due to a shortage of participants at the virtual Regional 4-H Judging Competition, there are several spots available on the Regional 4-H Judging Teams.
Therefore the Competitive 4-H Judging Committee is allowing any eligible 4-H member to advance to the Provincial 4-H Judging Competition on a first-come, first-served basis.
