Developed and sponsored by Hagerty, the Youth Judging Program brings the world of classics to youth primarily aged 8-14. A popular activity at Boat Show, Youth Judges will be guided through the show’s field as a group to pre-selected boats and interact with the owners, allowing the judges to learn details, history, and fun facts about each before scoring them and selecting a first, second, and third place winner. Interested in being a Youth Judge? Click here to sign up.
