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:

- "Creativity"

- It's "subjective"

- Color and beauty

- Very well molded

- Well stuffed and not floppy

- No sloppy stiching

- All seams are even and beautifully finished

- Personality
