Consumer Decision Making

4-H Consumer Decision Making

Every day you make decisions, such as what you are going to eat, what you are going to wear, or what to buy. Consumer Decision Making teaches you how to make decisions based on information that you have learned and studied and on facts that you have collected. It can also help you learn to defend your decisions.

The 4-H Consumer Decision Making Contest can help you practice making decisions by matching your knowledge, skills and abilities against those of others. You will learn to rank items based on standards and quality. 

Contact your local Extension office for information on local contests.
