Thank You Parents and Volunteers!

Another Livestock Skillathon, Make-up Skillathon, and Make-up Project Judging has finished for 2019. We want to thank the more than 75 parents, volunteers, committee members, and by-standers that jumped in to help make these events successful for our youth. It takes an army to make an event like this run smoothly and to complete it in a short amount of time. Thank you volunteers for your help and thank you parents for your patience. Skillathons and project interviews continue to provide a wonderful life experience and opportunity for youth to share their knowledge.
