Viewers Choice Awards

Each spring, artistic 4-Hers bring their artwork, sculpture and photographs to the Warwick Mall for the RI State 4-H Photo and Fine Arts Show. Judges evaluate each piece of work on it’s own merit according to the Danish system where artwork is judged against a standard, not against all of the other pieces of art.

4-Hers can earn ribbons for their effort and several pieces each year are selected by our judges for Best of Show designation. A few years ago, we began inviting the public to vote on their favorite from our judge’s favorites. Each year we tally over 100 votes to determine which piece captured the attention of shoppers.

The following are the results:
