Youth Judging
Youth Judging

Designed primarily for youth ages 8 to 14, the Youth Judging Program brings the world of classics to a kid friendly level. The young judges are guided through the show field, as a group, to pre-selected show cars and talk with owners to learn about the details, history and fun facts about each vehicle. A simplified score card, ranking on a scale of 1-to-5 on five basic categories, is used.
