"Youth gain so many positive skills by exhibiting livestock," Mike Anderson, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach 4-H youth program specialist and 4-H agriculture superintendent explained. "Youth learn responsibility, sportsmanship, and confidence. Agriculture industry knowledge related to animal care, feeding, recordkeeping, safety, and health is also gained through project area work throughout the year."

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

4-H members 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 members teach their audience about a topic they selected and researched. In working exhibits, the exhibitors invite passers-by to try a skill they demonstrate. In extemporaneous speaking, the 4-H members prepare a speech in 30 minutes and deliver it to an audience. In poster communication, they convey a message visually.
