Many of the students came home with tops honors.  However, I would state that “They are all winners for putting in the work it requires to get to the competition.”   It took a lot of work and practice for each young person to prepare for this level of competition.  Each 7th-12th grade
4-H’er gave an illustrated talk or demonstration on a topic they chose.  Most demonstrations last between 7-12 minutes. We also had youth compete in food preparation categories which last between an hour and half to two hours.  

Prior to district competition, 7th-12th had to prepare a 2-page portfolio (resume) and two supporting evidence pages of pictures from the work in their portfolio. Students could choose from over 64 projects for their demonstration.  Today’s projects include International, Ag. Safety, Computer Information, Conservation, Photography, Swine, Plant and Soils, Performing Arts, and History, just to name a few.

Competition for Juniors ends at district, but Seniors (9th-12th) have the ability to continue to the State Level Competition that happens in July. Competing at DPA, not only allows our youth to gain valuable life skills and the ability to share their interest but also earns them top honors in our county.
