An award has been given to a Benton County 4-H member. Megan Ternus, Vinton, exhibited an outstanding food and nutrition exhibit at the Iowa State Fair in the 4-H Exhibits Building. Miss Ternus' exhibit was Paska Ukrainian Easter Bread.
"Food and nutrition is one of the top projects in 4-H enrollment," said Michelle Thomsen, Benton County Youth Coordinator. "Most 4-H'ers enjoy learning about food. Having a nutrition display selected at the Iowa State Fair is an honor."
"Food and nutrition exhibits at the Iowa State Fair demonstrate that 4-H'ers set goals for themselves and work to meet those goals throughout the year." said Mitchell Hoyer, program specialist for Iowa State University Extension and Outreach 4-H Youth Development and 4-H Exhibits Building Superintendent.
"We are very proud of the personal accomplishments of 4-H participants in this project area and the educational learning experiences and life skills they gain," said LuAnn Johansen, Assistant Director of ISU Extension and Outreach 4-H Youth Development.
