Caldwell County Contest Day continues to demonstrate growth
What would Caldwell County kids know about robots, ear notching pigs, making a cheese ball, horses or making a birdfeeder? If you had an opportunity to be at the third annual Caldwell County Spring 4-H Contest Day, March 20, at the Kingston Nazarene Church, you would have been amazed at the project knowledge shared through demonstrations and speeches by Caldwell County 4-H youth! 4-H members entered Personal Appearance and Judging Contests earning ribbons for their efforts. Commissioner Bud Motzinger conducted the judging classes which gave members a chance to practice discernment and simple reasons. Clover Kids, ages 5-7, presented demonstrations and participated in judging and personal appearance and received special awards.
