Audubon County 4-H'ers earned recognition this week as communicators at the Iowa State Fair.

4-H'ers compete in three categories of oral communication -- educational presentations, working exhibits, extemporaneous speaking -- and one category of visual communication.  In educational presentations, the 4-H'ers teach their audience about a topic they selected and researched.  In working exhibits, the 4-H'ers invite passers-by to try a skill they demonstrate.  In extemporaneous speaking, the 4-H'ers prepare a speech in 30 minutes and deliver it to an audience.
