Supporting local 4-H Electric programs

Posted on Sep 01 2020 in Noble REMC

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:
