Stokes County 4-H News!

Taylor Furr - Extension Agent, 4-H Youth Development

On Thursday, May 11 the Stokes County 4-H held their annual Talent Show and Craft Show. At this event, 4-H’ers can enter to perform a talent or talents they have. We had 4-H’ers enter acts such as playing the piano, dancing, and a gymnastics floor routine. Out of our eight talent acts, two proceeded to the next competition level, which is at the North Central District Activity Day in June. Each 4-H’er who performed a talent act were recognized with a green participation ribbon, but the two who moved on to district received a blue ribbon. The two talent acts that were chosen to move on to district were Abigail Evans who performed a piano solo titled “I Love Music” and Michelle Hartman who had a gymnastics floor routine “Pirates of the Caribbean”. These two acts will perform at North Central District Activity Day on June 23 in Caswell County.

4-H’ers were also able to enter a craft to show their artistic abilities. We had 4-H’ers enter paintings, photos, collages, Lego sculpture, and much more. We are thankful for the artistic abilities of our 4-H’ers!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our talent and craft show, as well as the parents and families who were there to support our 4-H’ers. A huge thank you to our two judges for the night, Justin Carter and Nanci Furr. We appreciate you taking the time out of your evening to see how talented our youth of Stokes County 4-H are!

Pictured are the participants who move on to district.
