County 4-H’ers hone skills in Spring Fare competition

June 23, 2005

The Leavenworth County Fair is more than a month away, but that doesn't mean 4-H members are already competing in project skills.

Members from throughout Leavenworth County participated last weekend in Spring Fare, which provides 4-H members an opportunity to master project skills.

"Judges evaluate the members' project work, which allows them to measure their knowledge against a standard," said Beth Hecht, 4-H Youth Development Extension Agent. "4-H teaches life skills by building on things that interest the youth. They may learn more about nutrition or how to produce a product someone is willing to buy."

The results of the 4-H Spring Fare, conducted June 18, were:
