Consumer Decision Making

Do you consider yourself a shopper?  Even if you answer no to that question, you are probably still making important consumer purchasing decisions. As a consumer you make decisions of how to spend your time, money, and effort. What, why, where, when and how you are making purchases are all part of the consumer decision making experience.


In 4-H Consumer Decision Making members will learn: how to save money through comparing prices while shopping, testing for quality, and making purchases based on facts and research.


The 4-H Consumer Decision Making contest helps youth improve their money management skills, smart purchasing skills and decision-making skills for life.

Contest Rules:

  • This contest is open to all 4-H members. Participants may enter as an individual, team member or be considered as both. There is no limit to the number of teams and/or individuals that a county may enter.  Participants must pre-register in advance prior to registration deadline.
