This judged car show will also include the Hagerty Youth Judging Program. Designed primarily for youth ages 8-14, this 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 interact with owners, allowing the judges to learn details, history, and fun facts about each vehicle.

Youth Judging is free to participants and includes a hat, t-shirt and judging kit. Youth Judges Can Apply Here.
