Judging at the County Fair

Have you ever wondered what criteria judges use to determine a blue ribbon cake, freshly baked bread or canned sweet pickles? Evaluation of exhibits has always been an important part of the county fair, quilt exhibits, or baked shows. In the 1870’s, ribbons and awards were used to identify the outstanding new products and creative innovations at the county fair. Today the judging of exhibits at the county fair, helps adults and youth improve and practice their skills and abilities. You might also see a little friendly competition to see who wins the blue ribbon yeast bread or outstanding adult clothing construction sewing project.

Judges base their placings on a set of quality standards and the individual’s ability to make or create something that closely matches the standard. We all know when we see something that we like or taste a food that has a pleasing taste, look and texture.
