Yesterday I took a vacation day from work to volunteer my time for the annual county 4-H competition. Although their were several entries for each class, only a few photos will be posted for each. I judge different categories each year, and this time it was for the following :
Photo below - Here's a pretty good entry for the Blocks Rocks category, and was a creative way to assemble some simple lego blocks.
Photo below - Here is the winning entry from the 9-11 year olds for the extreme birdhouse category. It certainly caught my attention as soon as I walked up to the table full of different ones.
Photo below - This red one was clearly made by a fan of the Alabama Crimson Tide, but he really shouldn't think that a judge that is an Auburn Tiger fan would give him any bonus points for the presentation...hehe...Ok, I really didn't let this effect my scoring of it - I actually scored it quite high.
Photo below - here's some entries from the "what would you build" category. The 2 to the right were high quality, and certainly scored high by myself. I can really appreciate the effort. in building something......
Photo below - as always, at least one kid will make himself standout by wearing something completely crazy. (Notice the yellow hardhat with deer antlers duct taped to the top.)
In all, it was a very hectic day for me because of the number of entries to score and total, but I sure did enjoy it. It's quite rewarding to do something for my community, and I always step up when asked to do so.
