Winfield, Mo. - Kierstyn Schieffer of Winfield in Lincoln County was selected to demonstrate how to make Mason jar lid photo magnets and coasters at the 4-H Building at the Missouri State Fair.
She gave her demonstration in the 4-H Building at the Missouri State Fair. Missouri 4-H members compete at county events in order to qualify for the State Fair 4-H Building Demonstrations.
Demonstrations are a great way of sharing what the youth has learned in 4-H projects focused on STEM and agriculture, healthy living and civic engagement. Preparing for demonstrations helps 4-H youth develop research, organizational and communication skills. Presenting a demonstration helps 4-H youth build poise, confidence and public speaking skills.
