Consumer Choices

Every day you make choices.  It might be what you are going to eat, what you are going to wear, or what to buy. Consumer Choices 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 Choices Contest can help you practice making decisions by matching your knowledge, skills and abilities against those of others. You will learn to rank articles or products over others based on standards and quality.

Steele County will be having their annual Consumer Choices contest at the courthouse Friday May 15th at 6:30.  Pre-registration is not necessary
