Evaluation & Awards

Would you like to improve your skills and receive feedback from evaluators that specialize in your species or project skill? If so, here are some tips to help guide you in your video or pictures. Participating in this portion of the showcase will help build upon your skills and goals for your project. A certificate will be presented to participating members for evaluation submissions.

 

Evaluation Tips

What to show in your pictures/video of your animal:

  • Some photo options would be side profile view, front view, back view, top view. Highlight your animal’s best characteristics. Tell us what you like about your project in your paragraph and if there was something you could change, what would it be and why?
  • For a video, assume the camera is the evaluator. You can walk your animal, stop, and pose. Capture your animal at its best angle.

What to show in your pictures/video of your Quilting, Sewing, Arts & Crafts (ABA Project):

  • Display your whole project in your photos and videos. Let us take a closer look at your detailed work.
  • For a video, assume the camera is the evaluator. You can tell us about your pattern, color scheme, why you made the choices you did and what was challenging.
