4-H Video Cat Showmanship Contest

As many of you know, there is no longer a cat show at the Nebraska State Fair; therefore, we wanted to give youth interested in showing their cats an option to demonstrate their knowledge in a state level contest.  This summer, we will be holding a Video Cat Showmanship contest.

Myesha, member of the Clever Clover 4-H club, learned to use a sewing serger and made 38 cases to be stuffed for dog beds. They were stuffed with scraps saved from the church and local quilt Guild members. Myesha delivered them to the Dodge County Humane Society today.
