Youth Members

Virtual showcases and auctions can be used in conjunction with in-person events to provide new and different opportunities for young people to showcase themselves and their projects. Though not the same as the county fair, online judging is a great opportunity to share what you have learned and receive feedback from a judge to help you think about your goals and plans for next year. We hope these resources will help you make the most of your virtual learning showcase experience.

Those taking part in the virtual showcase experience may be interested in identifying convenient public wifi in their community. This is not an exhaustive list but a helpful tool. Youth participating in a virtual auction may also be interested in exploring the 4-H Animal Project Marketing Resources site.
