Nutrition Judging

Due to increasing concern about food safety, food tasting will no longer be part of nutrition judging (2016).  Participants may bring food, if they choose, but it will not be tasted and will not influence their project score. Additionally, each individual will be assigned a specific time for their nutrition judging (similar to Special Interest Judging). Each individual's project grade will be based on the following 3 areas:  Project Book Review (25%), MyPlate Questions (25%) and Portfolio Review and Interview (50%).
