Fremont 4-H Fair Static Results


By Mary Loftis, Extension Assistant 

Static results…how exciting does that sound? Still, motionless, stagnant, quiet…BORING! But, the static 4-H exhibits 4-H members produce may be motionless, but they are anything but boring. If you didn’t make it to the Fremont 4-H Fair, you’ll just have to come to the Burt County Fair to see what creative projects these 4-H members have created.

Special recognition medals were awarded to the top two exhibits in each project area. Burt County 4-H members brought home seven of these medals for the exhibits they had created.

Rayna Hladky of Tekamah received a gold medal for her acrylic painting in the Portfolio Pathways project.

Jenna Voskamp of Tekamah had her child development game named as a silver medal winner in Child Development.

Brent Miller of Lyons was a multiple award winner receiving a gold for his deer feeder in Wildlife Habitat; a silver in Model Rocketry and a silver in Electricity for rewiring a livestock grooming blower.

Layne Miller also of Lyons brought home two medals, a gold on his model rocket and a silver on his colonial folding table in woodworking.

Other Results included Clover Kids exhibits which are non-competitive:

Consumer and family science: Brennan Trotter, Tekamah, Kaylin Miller, Lyons (2) and Lily Ann Willing, Tekamah (2)

Fremont 4-H Fair, 4-H Pie Day 1 and More


Fremont 4-H Fair

It was a busy week last week for many of our county 4-H members as they took part in the Fremont 4-H Fair held at Christensen Field in Fremont. Results of all their activities can be found in a separate article. Details on the results of the static exhibits will be shared next week.

However, I do want to congratulate Brent Miller of Lyons on being crowned King of the Fremont 4-H Fair. This honor comes after a long, varied and successful 4-H career and he is very deserving.

 

The Burt County Fair is coming right up August 7-11, but we’ve got some pre-fair activities to tend to before then.

4-H Pie Day I

The first 4-H pie making day will be held this Thursday, July 16 in Tekamah in the Methodist Church basement beginning at 8:00 a.m. All help is appreciated to make short work of assembling these homemade pies. If you don’t know HOW to make a pie, this is a GREAT place to learn! You don’t have to be a 4-H family to help out, all help is appreciated, so stop by to help out.

4-H Rocket Launch

The 4-H Rocket Launch is set for 6:30 p.m. this Thursday, July 16th at Roger’s Sod Farm just south of Decatur. This is a fun evening of excitement and comradery as everyone wants everyone else to have a successful launch and do what they can to make that happen. 4-H members planning to participate are encouraged to call the Extension office at 402-374-2929 by noon the day of the contest to pre-enter. Spectators are always welcome, just bring a lawn chair.

Clothing and Fashion Show Pre-entries:

All Burt County clothing and fashion show entries are due Monday, July 20th so please get them in the Extension Office so the modeling schedule can be made up and sent out.

Ice Cream Buckets & Sweet Corn Requests:

We are asking all our faithful supporters to donate Ice Cream Buckets with Lids for 4-H Kitchen. The 4-H Kitchen needs of ice cream buckets to store left overs, chopped veggies, etc. during the fair. If you have more buckets (with lids) than you need, please bring them to the Burt County Extension Office and we’ll be happy to get them to the fairgrounds in time for the fair.

We are also looking for donations of sweet corn on Thursday evening or Friday of the fair as a new veggie offered for one day only. If you have extra sweet corn on August 6 or 7th we’d appreciate any donations and we’re always looking for cucumbers, so please keep the 4-H Kitchen in mind! Thank you!
