Most of us were disappointed, yet understanding, about the need to cancel the traditional local summer fairs for the safety of the community.
Luckily, 4-H’ers were still able to participate in their programs, with restrictions put in place for social distancing and judging remotely.
Noble REMC traditionally volunteers to judge local 4-H Electric projects, and it was the same this year, with the addition of DeKalb County 4-H activities. Judging was completed alongside LaGrange County REMC.
For judging, first-year 4-H members built circuit boards; second-year members made a “shake” flashlight; third-year members created a trouble light or extension cord; and fourth-year and advanced 4-H’ers selected their own project.
Congratulations to all who participated! Here is the list of local winners:
