Several 4-H youth will now advance to Iowa State Fair

A total of 20 Allamakee County 4-H youth recently showcased their talents by competing in various communications and clothing events during the Expressions Day Program and Style Show held at the Allamakee County Fairgrounds Pavilion in Waukon Sunday, June 24.

Several received top awards and will have the opportunity to represent Allamakee County at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, August 9-19.

4-H’ers winning top honors in Educational Presentations and who will be representing Allamakee County at the Iowa State Fair include Katherine Hagen, Logan Brown, Diana Davison and Gabriel Mattson. 4-H’ers are judged on stage presence, vocal projection, organization, visual aids, educational value of topic and how well they kept their audience interested as they present their information.

Representing Allamakee County in the category of Working Exhibits will be Logan Brown and Thomas Troendle. Working Exhibit participants are judged on their ability to describe, demonstrate or teach a product or skill directly to a small audience.

Selected to represent Allamakee County in the Clothing Selection category is Diana Davison. The Clothing Selection category provides participants the opportunity to develop skills when buying clothes, based on fit, care, construction and cost.

Lastly, Berlin Troendle, Kyrie Snitker and Katherine Hagen will represent Allamakee County in the category of Share-The-Fun. In Share-the-Fun, members perform before an audience purely for the sake of enjoyment.
