ESCAMBIA 4H TEAMS PLACE IN NATIONAL COMPETITIONS -- David Wayne
Pensacola, FL (Newsradio 92.3) -- Two Escambia County 4H teams have now placed in the top ten in national contests. The Food Challenge team placed eight at the National 4-H Food Challenge Contest in Dallas, Texas. The meat judging team placed ninth at the national contest in Kansas. Both contests were held in October. The teams won the Florida state contests earlier in the year to earn their spot at the national competitions.
The food challenge contest is a cooking competition where the team gets a predetermined set of ingredients and is randomly assigned a dish such as an appetizer or entree'. The meat judging contest challenges the team to identify 30 cuts of meat and assess its quality with oral arguments.
