4-H youth recognized for outstanding communication skills

Email

The annual Cass County 4-H Communication Arts & Expo Contest was held Saturday, March 2, at the Horace Elementary School with approximately 125 presentations and displays from youth ages 5 - 18 presented in 20 different competitive categories. The purpose of the Communication Arts contest is to help 4-H youth learn to organize information and develop skills in communication. The Expo contest is an opportunity for 4-H members to research a topic directly related to a 4-H project and prepare a table-top educational display.  The winners in the Communication Arts categories will compete in June at the District 4-H Communication Arts Contest set for Fargo. The Expo winners will compete in the State 4-H Expo Contest at the North Dakota State Fair in July.
