Clay County 4-Hers participated in the annual 4-H Communications Fair June 25, in the 4-H Auditorium on the Clay County Fairgrounds. The Clay County 4-H Youth Development program supports youth grades 4-12 through project exploration in a wide variety of interest areas. Communications Fair is a county mini-fair with an entire day of events that support skills in public speaking, demonstrations, educational presentations, and performance art such as dance, theatre and demonstrative cooking.

"The Clay County 4-H members are doing so well taking the challenge to apply communications skills to each of their project areas. We are seeing performances that are artistic and musical, but also projects that are an outgrowth of a previous year's project in agriculture, visual arts, citizenship, animal science, and engineering," Clay County Program Director Bonnie Dalager said. "I'm so glad that we can begin teaching our members that leadership, citizenship and communication can be infused into every area of their interests, hobbies and studies."

Many of the talented 4-Hers will be able to participate at the state level at the Iowa State Fair in August. Clay County 4-Hers chosen for the District level will be among 4-Hers from over 20 counties participating at the Clay County Fair this September.
