  Poultry Evaluation  
State Poultry CDE      

The 2022 Virginia Youth Poultry Evaluation Contest will serve as the Official State 4-H and FFA Poultry Evaluation Contests.  Due to Biosecurity concerns the 2022 Contest will be moved to State FFA Convention.  

Contest Date: June 27th, 2022 (Monday), 1:00 PM
Location: Virginia Tech, Blacksburg
Full details will be outlined in the contest letter and contest rules which will be released in May of 2022.

Information from 2021 Event:

Full details are outlined in the attached contest letter and contest rules – please take time to read them carefully, as the rules are very different for a Virtual vs. In-Person contest.  Several important items to note:

  • Reliable internet service with adequate bandwidth is necessary to view classes (pictures and videos)
  • Youth will need access to a desk top computer, laptop, or tablet – cellular devices may be used, but we cannot guarantee the ability to see the full scope of the pictures and videos
  • To uphold contest integrity, the contest must be proctored for ALL CONTESTANTS by a non-coach and non-parent adult – details and link for proctor approval are in the contest rules
  • Online entries are due by 5:00 pm on Friday, April 16th at this link https://tinyurl.com/2021-Virtual-Poultry-Contest
  • Entry fees are $20/team and $5.00/contestant not competing with a team – entry fees should be postmarked by Friday, April 16th
  • NEW for 2021:  Eligible Contestants that are enrolled in both organizations will be able to Dual-Enter, competing in both the 4-H and FFA Contests


This is an excellent opportunity to introduce youth who have an interest in poultry judging and product evaluation to the contest and process, without the commitment of traveling to a contest.  We hope that you will share this information with interested youth in your Unit and Chapter.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at carterke@vt.edu or call 540-231-2257.
