Kids busy with 4-H contests
We had a wild explosion of 4-H Dairy posters and unique t-shirt designs in my office recently. Posters seemed to be everywhere. They were in every nook, cranny and vacant spot in my office. It was an awesome sight.
About seventy youngsters from all over the county submitted posters to be judged in this year's event. They were not only unique but each was very creative. The youth had a wonderful time developing their masterpieces.
It's no wonder we had so many participants. The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRSC) staff including Andrea Chavers and Anne Cross served as judges and they had a very tough time making the final decision.
Royal thanks are extended to all the teachers and parents who encouraged their children to take part in the contest. You gave wonderful support!
The overall winner is Dustin Boutwell, a fourth grader at Pollard McCall School. His t-shirt design will be silk-screened onto t-shirts and you may purchase one for only $7.50. You can order one through this office. Just call or come by and place your order. It comes in all sizes.
