Do you know alternatives to antibiotics for your livestock?  Can you identify the different cuts of pork?  How about the current safety tips for four wheelers, kayaks, farming and being in the sun.  If you were one of the privileged spectators at the recent 4-H Public Presentation Contest on July 13, you will know the answer to these questions. With amazing confidence and skill, 26 Sanborn County 4-Hers presented a wide range of topics and knowledge.  Subjects ranged from how to keep your rabbit cool to networking at college to Jack Russell terriers!  It was an amazing testament to the talent and expertise of our 4-H youth.

Learning how to prepare food and meals is an absolute necessity for every individual. The Special Foods Contest is a great way for 4-Hers to address this challenge and to grow in their abilities. All thirteen of the participants at the contest held on July 7 were required to use correct measuring, mixing and preparation techniques. Along with proper food safety, the 4-Hers had to answer questions about the five food groups, six basic nutrients, and the vitamins and minerals present in the recipe they prepared. Youth are allowed a total of 90 minutes to prepare the recipe, complete a place setting and interview with the nutrition judge.  

Judging the contest this year were Margo Edwards and Maria Feldhaus. Receiving purple ribbons for their special dishes were: Kaylee Adams – Banana Muffins, Miley Adams – Chicken Parmesan Bake, Whitney Adams – Strawberry Banana Smoothie, Hope Baysinger – Pumpkin Muffins, Shay Bechen – Vegetable Goulash, Sury Bechen – No-Bake Energy Bites, Hudson Fouberg – Mexican Meat Cups, Ramsey Fouberg – Ramsey’s Favorite Egg Bake, Victoria Hoffman – Tator Tot Hotdish, Trevor Johnson – Orange Dreamsicle Smoothie, Brooklyn Larson – Terrific Taco Bake, Elisha Schultz – Chicken Scampi Pasta, and Isaiah Schultz – Creamy Bacon Pasta.
