Skills acquired during County 4-H Day

March 8, 2000

The feeling of butterflies in their stomach was common among 4-H youth participating. In this year's County 4-H Day. More than 150 youth from the county's 4-H clubs demonstrated poise and confidence as they vied for awards on Feb. 19.

"Acquiring the skill of speaking and performing before an audience comes with lots of practice," said Beth Hecht, 4-H youth development county extension agent. "Practice comes a little bit easier when the 4-H'er is practicing something they like and in which have an interest in."

The performance of the 4-H'ers is evaluated by a judge. The top performances will represent Leavenworth County at the regional competition March 18 at Atchison High School. Six other northeast Kansas counties also take part in the regional competition.
