Dallas County 4-H clubs will participate in a cooking challenge Dec. 30 at Washington Township School, located at the corner of P58 and F31 west of Minburn.


Sponsored by the Sugar Grove Sunshine 4-H Club in Dallas Center, eight teams from across the county will vie for honors of preparing their choice of menu.


From 9 a.m. until noon, the teams of two or three will prepare a main dish and two other dishes to go with it. They will be evaluated on their food preparation and knowledge, team work, quality and safety as well as communication skills, with each team choosing what they want to prepare.


The morning competition is open for anyone who wants to watch the imagination and skills Dallas County 4-H members and friends will provide.


Awards will be made after judging is completed at noon.
