The annual Cass County 4-H Communication Arts & Expo Contest was held Jan. 29, at the Horace Elementary School in West Fargo.

Approximately 90 presentations and displays from youth ages 5-18 were presented in 17 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. 

Winners in the Communication Arts categories will compete in June during the District 4-H Communication Arts Contest, to be held in Fargo. Expo winners, consequently, will compete in the State 4-H Expo Contest, to be held in July during the North Dakota State Fair.
