4-H Consumer Decision Making

The Overview:

  • Basically, you go in a room with a bunch of other kids. You have a clipboard, paper, reason and score cards,and maybe a calculator. 
  • There is a situation on the table- maybe something like " Sally Jo needs to buy a camera. Her budget is $250. She wants one with 3 LCD." Then, looking at info about 4 cameras, you choose which one is the best buy, and rank them. 
  • For example, if #4 is the best buy,#2 is the second best, then #1, and #3 is the worst,you would rank the class as 4-2-1-3. 
What not to do:
  • DON'T show up unprepared. Ask your county agent for this year's info packet, and study it.
  • Don't bring your notes in when you give your speech.
  •  There is a special class called a reasons class. Take notes on why you ranked the class the way you did. 
  • When you go in front of the judge, say why you ranked the class the way you did. But only tell about the reasons class! I did not know this at first and was just rattling off info about why I picked every class!
