Rendsville 4-H received top honors in Stevens County 4-H 'Share the Fun'
The Stevens County 4-H held the annual Share the Fun competition on Friday, March 23, 2013. Share the Fun is an evening of fun and entertainment starring 73 area 4-Hers. This year, six of the Stevens County 4-H Clubs shared their original skits under the theme “Happily Ever After”. Members participate by creating a skit and props; they then perform their skit for an evening of fun. Through the Share the Fun experience members experience performing with a group and are given exposure to the arts.
Rendsville 4-H Club received top honors with their skit “4-H Memories”. Second place went to the Swan Lake 4-H Club with “It’s a Wonderful Fair”. Both the clubs received an opportunity to perform their skits at the Minnesota State Fair in August.
The B.E.E.S 4-H Club received the Creative Cat Award for their skit, “A Messed Up Fairytale”. Hodges 4-H Club performed “Happily Ever After”, and received the Snickers Award. The Great Imagination Award went to the Scott 4-H Club for their skit, “4-H Far Away Land”. Horton 4-H Club performed “Once Upon a Project” and received the 4-H Spirit Award.
Individual Awards for the evening included Colten Scheldorf, of the B.E.E.S 4-H Club receiving the best costume award. Best Actress was awarded to Katie Cannon, Jena DeRung and Caitlin Wilts, of the Swan Lake 4-H Club. Evan Nelson, of the Hodges 4-H Club received the Best Actor Award.
The evening was hosted by the Stevens County 4-H Ambassadors; this group planned the event and provided entertainment in between the club skits. The 4-H Ambassadors involved were Amy Berlinger, Chelsey Ehleringer, Anna Langerud, Katie Ohren, Jena DeRung, Andrew Scheldorf and Caitlin Wilts. A huge thank you to this group for all of their hard work!
