River Valley District 4-H fielded five teams, consisting of 17 individuals, in the Kansas State Fair Photography Judging Contest September 8 in Hutchinson. In this event, 4-H’ers age 9 to 13 (intermediates) and 14 to 18 (seniors) are asked to rank photos with the best first, according to how a knowledgeable photo volunteer has placed them. They also answer a problem-solving class and take a 50-point written test. Participants compete as both individuals and teams.
