Georgia 4-H Consumer Judging.
Blackburn, Mary Ellen; Hall, Doris N.
Materials are provided for a consumer education activity designed to help teenagers make knowledgeable, rational decisions when purchasing goods and services. A student manual describes how the activity--a consumer judging contest--works. Information is provided on how consumers make decisions. Topics include: needs versus wants; sources of information on products; why people shop where they do; advertising advice; tips when shopping the sales; decision making; and consumer's rights and responsibilities. The final section provides information on how to be an expert judge. The manual is followed by the following materials: a brochure on the activity; contest registration form; information on both junior and senior consumer judging, including objectives, project procedure, project awards, and special regulations; and a list of consumer judging resources, such as videos, multimedia kits, computer programs, magazines, and catalogs. Two lesson plans on consumer judging are provided. Components of each are: title; objectives; time; lists of supplies, materials, and props; and content outline that correlates narration with visuals and student participation. Some additional example situation statements complete this packet of materials. (YLB)
