HOISINGTON — The 4-H Hoisington Jets have readied themselves for upcoming Barton County Fair with baking, art projects, wood working, dog training, photography, horticulture, metal work and hand pets.
Some projects take all year, but others, such as cooking, are done immediately prior to the fair, which is July 9-13.
In addition, five of the 10 Barton County Ambassadors are from Hoisington. They are: Desmond Noah, Tiffany Schneider, Brinttain Noah, Kayleigh Bitter and Kylie Broeder.
“4-H teaches leadership, responsibility and relationships,” said Carrie Bitter, Jets leader. “Kids are much better speakers. They’re good teachers to younger kids. They learn communication and keep active for summer.”
She added that they gain self-confidence with what they’ve accomplished.
4-H Ambassador Desmond Noah is very active in the group and will be a camp counselor. He has learned skills, responsibility and leadership through his participation in 4-H.
