Club Days

Speaking skillfully before an audience is one of the hallmarks that Kansas 4-H members have been successfully doing for over 100 years. Kansas youth through 4-H have learned the skills necessary to get up before an audience and eloquently speak. 4-H has helped youth learn the skills necessary to clearly organize and present thoughts and ideas through project talks, demonstrations, illustrated talks and public speaking presentations.

Favorite Food Show

The Favorite Food Show is an exhibit and contest to encourage 4-H members to learn about meal planning, food preparation and presentation. A "Favorite Food" is chosen, one the 4-H'er likes and likes to prepare. A menu is planned with the food and the table decor is coordinated. Foods chosen maybe main courses, desserts, snacks, breads, casseroles or other.

A recipe card and menu card should be displayed with the proper table setting. The 4-H'er will visit informally with the judge and tell how to prepare and serve the food, why they selected the table service  and dishes, why the centerpiece is appropriate. The 4-H'er should also know some of the nutritional value of the food and be able to discuss that with the judge.

Elk County Favorite Food Show is Tuesday, June 7, 9:00 a.m.
