The annual 4-H Awareness Day was held Saturday at the Peninsula Center Mall. A pig, a goat, three lambs, ducks, rabbits and guinea pigs were out to greet the public. Many 4-H youth were there to help show youngsters the animals.
Youth also brought in 37 educational displays which told about some 4-H project they were working on. Subjects covered included black holes, adopting a horse, poisonous plants, breeds of horses, lambing and the difference between horns and antlers.
The winners, who received cash prizes, included:
Grades three to five
Maya Johnson, first, and Megan Hansen, second, general
Caleb Daniels first, and Walker Boyle, second, market livestock.
Grades six to eight
Tinei Schwenke, first, and Angelea Wood, second, general
Aurora Lambert, first, and Tatiana Butler, second, market livestock.
Grades nine to 12
Morgan Hoxie, first, general
Troy Glidden, first, and Elisabeth Habermann, second, market livestock.
Each participant received a participation award.
The event also included an edible food sculpture contest, judged by the public. Joseph Ramirez won that competition with birds made out of watermelons, strawberries and other fruits.
