Shelby County 4-H County Food Show Contest Results

January 17, 2017 - The Shelby County 4-H Food Project students are busy getting ready for the District Food Contest to be held on February 4, 2017. In November, the Food Project began with educational workshops on Kitchen Safety, Food Safety, Nutrition Basics and Public Speaking. During these workshops, participants practiced the knowledge gained while perfecting their food prep and cooking skills.

In addition to the workshops, the youth were able to practice their skills by participating in a county Food Show contest with the categories of protein, fruits/vegetables, grains and dairy. This event was held on January 12, 2017 at 6:00 pm at the Shelby County active courthouse. Each contestant was required to submit the recipe to the Shelby County Extension office. Each contestant prepared their dish at home and then transported it to the event. The contestants each decorated their table and plated their dish with the theme, “Family Favorites” to present to the judges. The contestants were judged on appearance, place setting, and presentation to judges. The first-place winners in each category for the overall food show entry advances to district.
