Kendall County Youth Showcase STEM and Art Projects at August 4-H Shows – Shaw Local

0

Editor’s Note: This is Part 2 of the 2022 4-H Results Kendall County 4-H shows. Part 1 presented the results of animal exposure.

Local youth shared their talents, skills and knowledge through 4-H projects at the Kendall County 4-H Shows in August at the Kendall County Fairgrounds.

“The 4-H show season is an important — and fun — part of every summer for our members,” said Kim Eisnaugle, 4-H Youth Development Program Coordinator. “They can demonstrate what they’ve learned and accomplished throughout the year and create memories with friends and family.”

Through their 4-H projects, members try new things, gain knowledge and develop life skills to help them now and in the future. They can explore hundreds of projects in seven areas of study – animal science, career and leadership development, creative arts, environmental science, global civic engagement, healthy living and nutrition, and STEM. The 4-H conference judging process provides youth with experience and feedback to continue growing and discovering next year.

For sisters Emily and Sydney Reppy, this marked their final season of 4-H performing. They said they appreciate not only the project skills they have acquired over the years, but also other 4H experiences.

“4-H is a way to get involved in your community. I have learned many life skills through the service and learning opportunities 4-H has provided me,” said Sydney.

Emily added, “For me, 4-H is an opportunity for personal growth. It gave me the chance to learn and teach others through leadership and service. »

The two plan to return and volunteer with Illinois 4-H next year, and they’re not alone.

Each summer, dozens of adult members of the community give back to 4-H by volunteering their time and expertise to judge or host 4-H shows, or by sponsoring prizes, such as trophies or banners. Several community members and organizations also contribute to all Kendall County 4-H shows to offset additional expenses.

“We greatly appreciate all of our amazing volunteers for giving our youth this positive growth experience,” Eisnaugle said. “Thank you to our Kendall County 4-H Show and Rewards sponsors for your support of the programs and for recognizing the hard work and dedication of our 4-H youth.”

Results from the 2022 Kendall County Fair 4-H Project General Expo are listed by project area, 4-H member name, and 4-H club.

“4-H programs and experiences strive to help young people gain a sense of belonging, develop independence, give back to their communities and master their skills,” Eisnaugle said. “The annual 4-H shows at the fair bring it all together as we celebrate the end of this 4-H year and look forward to a new 4-H year in the fall.”

This fall, the annual 4-H launch event will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, October 7 at the Kendall County Fairgrounds in Yorkville. For more information about 4-H in Kendall County, visit go.illinois.edu/info4Hdkk.
