There have been a number of changes for 2019 Food Challenge Rules. Please see below and be sure to read the Rules and Guidelines carefully!

Team Members:

To provide consistency with other Texas 4-H contests, as well as national contests, the number of team members for Food Challenge has changed.  Teams will have at least 3 and no more than 4 members per team.

Contest Resources:

Contests resources have changed!  Resources which will now be used for the contest include the following:

  • MyPlate Mini-Poster
  • Fight Bac Brochure
  • Know Your Nutrients
  • Food Challenge Worksheet

The previous resource of Altering Recipes for Good Health is now considered a training resource for agents and coaches to use when preparing teams for contest.  Nutrient Needs at a Glance has been replaced with a more user friendly resource:  Know Your Nutrients.

Supply Box Changes:

Quantities and sizes of a few items have changed.  Please refer to the list for these changes.  Also, a new “Gadget of the Year” has been added!  This will change annually to give teams an opportunity to learn how to use various kitchen gadgets.


Presentation Changes:

ALL team members must now participate and have a speaking role during the presentation to the judges.

Scorecard Changes:

Scorecards have been updated to reflect subject matter to be included in presentations AND a new numerical scoring system.  Although space is limited on the front of the scorecard for judge’s comments, agents should encourage judges to use back of sheet for commenting.
