4-Hers planning on participating in the Special Foods Contest, please note that the date has had to be changed. It will now be held on July 6th. The entries are still due by tomorrow, July 1.

I apologize for any inconvenience and hope that everyone will still be able to participate. See the below information for complete details and please help spread the word to other 4-H families that might be participating.

Special Foods Contest

 The Special Foods Contest will be held on July 6 at the Catholic Parish Hall. The first session will begin at 10:00 AM, CT. Depending on the number of entries, a possible second session will begin at 12:30.

4-H participants will have 90 minutes to prepare a main dish for a meal and complete a place setting. During the preparation time the judge will observe and score on components including: measuring methods, presentation of finished place setting, knowledge of nutrients and personal diet needs.

There are Junior (8 -10), Intermediate (11-13) and Senior (14-18) divisions.  For more information, contact the Extension Office.  Entry forms are available on our web site at http://cherry.unl.edu/cherrycounty4h under Cherry County Fair Entry Forms or at the Office. Entries are due on or before July 1. An agenda with participant’s start time will be sent to 4-Hers after entries are received.
