4-H Special Foods Contest held May 26

Thanks to a Special Foods Workshop put on by the Town ‘N Kountry Kids 4-H Club, the largest number of 4-Hers recently participated in the annual 4-H Special Foods Contest held on May 26.
Eighteen 4-Hers spent the day preparing smoothies, salads, muffins and various meat dishes.  Judging the contest this year were Maria Feldhaus, 4-H Advisor for Miner County, and Margo Edwards.
This contest gives the youth a chance to prepare a recipe from any of the five food groups. One requirement is that three ingredients must be measured during the contest in front of the judge.  Often times, first time participants will choose something simple, such as a smoothie.
During the contest, 4-Hers are tested on their nutritional knowledge and must answer questions from the judges.  Other elements of the contest include planning a menu and displaying a table setting to go along with the special dish. The variety of the table settings vary greatly year to year and often showcase bright colors and themes.

Purple: Hope Baysinger – Strawberry Pineapple Smoothie, Katelin Deneke – Pork Apple Burgers, Ellie Evans – Chocolate Banana Smoothie, Bailey Feistner – Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins, Keaton Fridley – Blueberry Blast Smoothie, Kenlie Fridley – Strawberry Yogurt Smoothie, Victoria Hoffman – Simple Summer Smoothie, Brady Larson – Pizza Meat Cups, Bryce Larson – Strawberry Rhubarb Smoothie, Nathan Linke – Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza, Megan Linke – Skillet Lasagna, Emily Ohlrogge – Creamy Chicken Tortellini, Isaiah Schultz – Green Grape Salad, Sutton Senska – Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie, Payton Uecker – Strawberry Banana Smoothie;
