4-H Favorite Foods Contest


By Mary Loftis, Extension Associate

As we count down the days to the fair, we can start checking off pre-fair activities and contests. One of these is the 4-H Favorite Foods Contest.

It was held Monday, July 25 at the Vet’s Building in Oakland. Twelve participants set beautiful tables and created excellent menus with delicious foods ranging from fruit smoothies to jambalaya and lemon dessert to lasagna.

Results are as follows:

Clover Kid (ages 5-7):

Logan Gramke, Oakland made Birthday Party Pizzas while Karsen Olsen of Lyons made chocolate marshmallow pops. They both received Clover Kid ribbons.

Junior Division (ages 8 & 9):

Ashlynne Gramke of Oakland earned Champion honors with her fruit smoothie and Eli Schlichting of Oakland received a blue ribbon and the pork award with his pepperoni pizza.

Intermediate Division (ages 10 & 11):

Paul Roscoe of Lyons was named Champion in a tough group of intermediate division competition with his cowboy stew. Reserve Champion went to Camryn Brehmer of Lyons with a wonderfully refreshing lemon ice cream dessert. The pork award and another purple ribbon went to Caleb Schlichting of Lyons for his delicious lasagna.

Blue ribbons were received by Andrew Schlichting of Lyons for his Hot Pockets and to Sydney Olsen for her beef tacos.

Senior Division (ages 12-18): Ashley Bohannon of Tekamah topped her division with Champion honors for her softball themed breakfast casserole meal. Reserve Champion went to Faith Roscoe of Lyons for her Cinnamon Bubble Buns. Amelia Schlichting of Lyons received a blue ribbon, but earned the Pork Award with her New Orleans themed Jambalaya meal.

These 4-H members will have their place settings (but no food) on display in the 4-H Building during the Burt County Fair. Come and see what wonderful entertainers this 4-H contest is developing!
