Anything but Animals (ABA) Judging Day is an educational event in which members judge different classes of projects (Scrapbooking, nutrition, baking, crafts, leather crafting, etc.), identify tools necessary for projects, and give oral reasons as to how they placed the class.

Members will judge a variety of 4-H ABA topics within their age division. Judging is a process to help 4-H members grow in their abilities to think, reason, and make logical and scientific judgments. The member would then present their reasons to an evaluator.
