One thing for sure is that the judges are the only one who could award the ribbons. Judges in the 4-H uses a system call the Modified Danish Judging System. The Modified Danish System is where the project is judged by the requirements that are needed. The system is fair. Any project is welcome and children who enters the contest will get a ribbon no matter what because it shows the effort that they use to put in their work and it helps them to improve on it like what they need to focus on and what is their weakness and strongest point. In this contest a score sheet is use. A score sheet is a sheet that the judges use to write down their comments and thoughts. The Danish System is a system that does not compare projects to each other. Unlike the other competitions, the judges compares projects by the design, creative ideas, sizes, looks, and many others.
