Sanborn County 4-H recently held their annual 4-H Special Foods Contest on May 24. Fourteen 4-Hers spent the day preparing smoothies, salads, muffins and various meat dishes. Judging the contest this year were Margo Edwards, Paula Linke and Audra Scheel, 4-H Youth Program Advisor for Aurora, Jerauld-Buffalo and Sanborn Counties.
This unique 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.
