The 2010 fair season began on July 7 with the Favorite Foods, Company’s Coming and Presentations contests. 4-H’ers participating in the Favorite Foods Contest planned a themed menu and table setting. One food that the 4-H’er prepared was brought to the contest along with the selected table service and centerpiece. Contestants in the Company’s Coming Contest created a meal on-site, using tableware and foods from the contest pantry. In each contest, 4-H’ers were also judged on their communication skills by presenting their menu to a judge.

4-H’ers competing in the Presentation Contest used their public speaking skills to demonstrate a skill or share information with the audience using posters or multimedia.
