Clay County 4-Hers Compete at the Iowa State Fair

The 2012 Iowa State Fair, held in Des Moines, ran from August 9 through August 19 and found many 4-H youth from Clay County competing in 4-H static exhibit and communication events.  The Iowa State Fair is a great part of Iowa’s heritage and hosts an abundance of opportunities for 4-H'ers and their families. 

Clay County 4-Hers did an excellent job of representing Clay County and in promoting 4-H.  Clay County sent 37 static exhibits to the Iowa State Fair and received 24 blue ribbons and 13 red ribbons.  "These 4-Hers have shown a tremendous amount of knowledge in their project areas" said Chuck Morris, Iowa State University Extension 4-H Youth Development director. "They have developed important life skills as they worked to achieve their goals." 

Clay County 4-Hers also had the opportunity to demonstrate their communications skills in front of a fair audience receiving 6 Excellence, 2 Merit, 2 Recognition and 3 “Share-the-Fun” Participation awards. These communications skills were enjoyed during the Extemporaneous Speaking, Educational Presentation, Working Exhibit and the Share-the-Fun acts in the 4-H Exhibit Building.  "Almost any time fairgoers come into the 4-H Exhibit Building they can learn from a 4-Her participating in a communications activity," said Mitchell Hoyer, program coordinator for Iowa State University Extension 4-H Youth Development.  "Effective communication means appealing to the interests of your audience."  Judges were also present to give the 4-Hers skill building pointers and comments.
