Tama County 4-H members earned recognition as communicators at the Iowa State Fair. 4-H members compete in three categories of oral communication: educational presentations, working exhibits, and extemporaneous speaking. In educational presentations, the 4-H members teach their audience about a topic they selected and researched. In working exhibits, the exhibitors invite passers-by to try a skill they demonstrate. In extemporaneous speaking, the 4-H members prepare a speech in 30 minutes and deliver it to an audience. In poster communication, they convey a message visually. “Almost any time fairgoers come into the 4-H Exhibits Building they can learn from a 4? H member participating in a communications activity,” said Mitchell Hoyer, program specialist for Iowa State University Extension and Outreach 4-H Youth Development and 4-H Exhibits Building superintendent. “Effective communication means appealing to the interests of your audience.” In addition, Tama County 4-H members performed during the Share-the-Fun event in the 4-H Exhibits Building at the Iowa State Fair. Share-the-fun participants perform vocal or instrumental music, dance, humorous skits, monologues and specialty acts. “Performers receive evaluation comments from a judge, but are not ranked,” said Mitchell Hoyer, program specialist for Iowa State University Extension and Outreach 4-H Youth Development and 4-H Exhibits Building Superintendent. “The purpose of the show is to entertain the audience and have fun while you’re doing it.” Tama County State Fair Educational Presentations Exhibitors: Abby Sandvick, Toledo, Toledo Techs, Excellence Eric Keller, Gladbrook, Young Guns, Merit Lauren Keller, Gladbrook, Young Guns, Excellence Andrea Bolen, Toledo, Young Guns, Excellence Dallas Bolen, Toledo, Young Guns, Excellence Taylor Lekin, Toledo, Toledo Techs, Excellence Tama County State Fair Working Exhibit Exhibitors: Lauren Keller, Gladbrook, Young Guns, Merit Tama County State Fair Share the Fun Exhibitors: Dallas Bolen, Toledo, Young Guns, Recognition Abigail Kemp, Beaman, Wolfcreek Whirlwinds, Recognition Hope Werner, Toledo, Toledo Techs, Recognition “We are very proud of the personal accomplishments of 4-H participants in this project area and the educational learning experiences and life skills they gain,” said Jenny Hulme, Tama County Youth Coordinator.
