Judging System for the Nez Perce County Fair

The Nez Perce County Fair uses the DANISH SYSTEM OF JUDGING. The Danish System of judging is based upon established standards of quality for each type of product. In this system each exhibit is judged according to how well it meets the standard rather than how well it compares with other exhibits.

The Danish System of Judging does not compare one person’s work to another. The evaluation is made against a project standard. The judge evaluates whether the requirements have been met. Stickers/Ribbons are awarded according to the degree that the member’s project meet the standards. A participation ribbon may be awarded to an exhibitor whose work fulfills the minimum qualifications.

”Excellent” Blue Ribbon/Sticker Award Exhibits that rank “Excellent meet the standards and fit well within the ability of most of the exhibitors.” Blue indicates that the exhibit meets or exceeds product standards and meets exhibit requirements; overall, the work is of high quality—Excellent. Excellent does no indicate perfection, but indicates a high degree of achievement toward the elements in the standards for the exhibits.

“Good” Red Ribbon Sticker/Award Exhibits that rank “Good” in relation to the project standards or expected achievement. Red means the exhibit meets minimum product standards and exhibit requirements; overall, the work is of average quality—Good. Either the general level of the accomplishment is less than excellent or enough specific shortcomings are found to cause the placing to drop from excellent to good. Red indicates good quality; however, there is room for improvement in the exhibit.

”Fair” White Ribbon/Sticker Award Exhibits that do not meet the product standards and need much improvement. White indicates serious or considerable deficiencies in meeting product standards and/or exhibit requirements—Fair. These exhibits upon evaluation are found lacking and rate only average, acceptable or satisfactory for the standards established.

Special Awards An outline of special awards can be found in each of the departments’ page. A Special Award will only be awarded by a Judge or a Superintendent providing an exhibit earns such merit.

No Award or Ribbon May be given if exhibits which, for one reason or another, fail to produce that level of achievement which can be reasonably expected in relation to the specific class or performance in which they are entered.

STICKERS CAN BE TRADED FOR SILK RIBBONS WHEN ENTRIES ARE PICKED UP ON SUNDAY AT 3:30 p.m.
