The local Fort St. James 4-H Club hosted the Vanderhoof and District 4-H Communications Event on April 14.

There were junior speakers, senior speakers and junior and senior demonstrators competing.

The demonstrators worked in pairs to explain and show different skills or activities.

As the judges presented the medals, they all commended the presenters on their articulate and well-done talks and emphasized how impressed they were by the 4-H members.

The talks were all timed and scored based on a number of factors, and subjects ranged from jokes to in-depth explanations. There were demonstrations of skills from cooking to rope-making.

The two top senior speakers and the first top junior speaker will now go to Terrace to compete in the regional competition on April 28.

First Sydnee Schlamp
