SEDALIA, MISSOURI — On August 13, 2017, Elsie and Eli Kigar from the Jolly Jacks & Jills 4-H club in Scotland County presented demonstrations at the Missouri State Fair in the 4-H Building on the fairgrounds in Sedalia.
Elsie’s demonstration was entitled “How to Make Homemade Noodles” while Eli gave a presentation entitled “How to Make A Dirt Hole Set for Trapping”.
The siblings were among the 300 youth selected to give a demonstration in the 4-H Building at the Missouri State Fair. Missouri 4-H members compete at the county events in order to qualify for the State Fair 4-H Building demonstrations.
Demonstrations are a great way of sharing what the youth has learned in 4-H projects. Preparing for a demonstration helps 4-H youth develop research, organization and communication skills. Presenting a demonstration in front of a group helps 4-H youth build poise, confidence and public speaking skills.
