Weld County 4-H Contest Day is comprised of three different contests. The three contests are: Creative Cooks, Cake Decorating and Performing Arts Contests. Any 4-H member can participate in all three contests.
4-H CREATIVE COOKS’ CONTEST
What is the Creative Cooks' Contest? Members plan a menu and table setting around a theme and prepare a food dish to display with the exhibit. They use their knowledge of nutrition, meal planning and food preparation in a creative way. Judges interview the participants to discuss their exhibits and knowledge of foods and nutrition.
The Creative Cooks' Contest is open to all 4-H members. Enrollment in a foods project is not a requirement. Any 4-H member ages 8 to 18 may enter. Cloverbuds will be able to participate in the Creative Cooks’ Contest.
CAKE DECORATING CONTEST
In this contest, participants decorate a unit-appropriate cake (or cake form; see new Unit requirements) within a given time period while being observed by the judges. See specific time allowances and requirements, which are included with these guidelines.
Open division, in 2015 we will accept decorated cakes & creative cook entries to be judged separately from the 4-H division. Please refer to the entry form for rules. This division is open to any adult or child.
WELD COUNTY PERFORMING ARTS CONTEST
The 2015 Performing Arts Gala is open to all youth enrolled in the Weld County 4-H program. This is a great time to have fun, make friends and perform before your parents, grandparents and other friends. Plan to participate. It’s not all about winning and going on to state. It’s about growing and learning!
