STANDARDS AND REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL STARK COUNTY 4-H FOOD AND NUTRITION PROJECTS
  1. All Ohio 4-H Food and Nutrition Projects are required to follow the NEW “MyPlate” dietary guidelines.
    Only the newer books starting in 2012 food and nutrition 4-H books and newer will have the new
    MyPlate dietary guidelines listed. The older books will still have the outdated food pyramid. It is up to the 4-H youth and/or advisor to pick-up a copy of the
    MyPlate dietary guidelines which will be at all of the county’s Food & Nutrition Clinics or you may print out a copy online at: www.choosemyplate.gov
  2. All required information and/or activities in the project book should be completed, unless not
    applicable (please mark “N/A” in the space). If the book is being re-used or used by more than one
    member, record information on separate sheets of paper.
  3. State Fair selection will be determined by the judge. Judge’s decision is final.
What to bring to Food & Nutrition Judging:
  1. Using the MENU FORM, write a MENU for the day using NEW MyPlate’s guidelines.
  2. Completed project book. (You will not bring any food to judging.)
  3. 4-H Food Journal (see details below about this journal) No posters.
  4. You must have a Food Journal completed to be eligible to participate at the state fair.
The 4-H Food Journal must be prepared as follows:
The 4-H participant will be responsible for bringing a 3 ring binder/folder that includes 8 ½” x11” pages. The participant will create a maximum of one page (one-sided only and could be less than a full page) per “activity area” or “interest area” as designated in the front of their project books. These pages could be in collage, journaling, timeline, photo, or any other format that would illustrate the work and knowledge of the participant. Each page could be different or could be a combination of styles providing the 4-H’er to reflect on their learning experience. There will be no points for scrapbooking style.
