Northeast Kansas 4-H judge training scheduled

4Adults with knowledge in specific project areas are invited to Oskaloosa for a regional 4-H judge training. The training will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 27, at Oskaloosa Public Schools, 404 Park Street. 

Volunteers will learn the foundations of working with 4-H youth and see the specific evaluation criteria of project areas at this training. The evening will start with a meal and general session, followed by project specific breakout sessions that volunteers select to attend, to learn the specifics of that project. 

Project areas slated to be covered this year are foods, yeast breads, table setting, fiber arts – quilting, plant science and woodworking. This is the second year that a training like this has been offered, we hope to make it an annual event moved about Northeast Kansas. While developing a pool of newly trained fair judges is the goal, anyone is welcome to attend and learn more about the project areas listed.
