About 15 Glenn County 4-H members participated in the second annual 4-H Anything But Animals Extravaganza in November.

The event included the Food Fiesta, Creative Arts and Skills Day, ABA Judging Day and Interview Contest. 

The event took place on Nov. 16 at C.K. Price Intermediate School in Orland, said Sara van Tol, Glenn County 4-H interim Program Representative, in a press release. 

The adult chair for the event was Marci Sanchez, key leader of the Schaffer 4-H Club, and the youth chair for the event was Daria Danley, Clover 4-H member. 

Members from several local 4-H clubs also assisted with the event. 

The county ambassador team members who assisted with the event included Carson Karle, Vivianna Olmos and Noah Bostrom along with their adviser Landry Otterson. 

The 4-H members brought many food dishes and centerpieces and displays to be judged at the Food Fiesta event. 

They were also required to set a proper table setting and provide a nutritionally-balanced menu. 

Members also participated that day by judging ABA classes and testing their knowledge on many 4-H topics including sewing, leadership, cooking and finances. 

A few members participated in the Interview Contest. Youth had to choose a job, create a resume and cover letter for the chosen job and participate in a mock interview. 

“A big thank you to all the leaders, youth and parents who helped with this new ABA Extravaganza event and set up, evaluate and tabulated,” read the press release. “Thank you to C.K. Price Intermediate School for use of their facility.”
