Turning on the light

LaGrange County REMC Energy Advisor Jake Taylor speaks with a 4-H Electric participant during the project judging process at the 2019 LaGrange County 4-H Fair in July.

While you were grabbing a corn dog or lemon shake up, you may have seen our energy advisor, Jake Taylor, visiting the LaGrange County 4-H Fair. While he may have also indulged in the great food, he was there to give back to the community by helping to judge the 4-H Electric projects. 

Taylor, alongside Noble REMC Energy Advisor Brian Hawk, evaluated projects and spoke to participants about what they learned while completing them.

The duo graded each project based on workmanship and the 4-H member’s knowledge. First-year 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. 

Wyatt Hanaway was awarded overall 4-H Electric grand champion with his number-generating project, while Aaron Lanesmith was the reserve grand champion with his circuit board. 

Congratulations to all participants!
