For some, the Minnesota State Fair is all about competition. Every weekday during the fair, All Things Considered is asking: "What are they judging?"
Read or listen to the judge describing what they look for in a winner, and then try and guess what it is. Click on the picture to the right to reveal what they're judging.
What today's judge is looking for:
- Uniformity of size
- No physical damage or disease
- Maturity and color
- Clean, but not scrubbed
- Not over trimmed
- Not ragged
- Good color
