The Central Iowa Area 4-H Recognition interviews were held Saturday, March 6, 2010 at United Community Schools between Boone and Ames. Thirty-seven 4-H'ers from 14 central Iowa area counties participated by submitting written support material explaining their participation in specific 4-H project areas. Participants could also apply for participation in 4-H National Congress, 4-H National Conference, State 4-H Council, and the Iowa Youth Tech Team.

Receiving recognition from Boone is Alexa Lingren of Pilot Mound who will advance to state consideration in safety and leadership 4-H project awards and a chance to represent Iowa at National 4-H Congress. Another 4-H'er who took part in the Central Iowa Area Recognition was Carissa Brown of Boone for her work in the food and nutrition 4-H project

Each participant's support material was evaluated by a panel of three judges. The same three judges interviewed the youth for ten minutes at United Community School. Courtney Tingwald, of Woodward and an ISU student, and Paula Walter of Madrid were judges representing Boone County, and Traci Haselhuhn from Boone represented Humboldt County.

"The Central Area Recognition gives 4-H'ers the opportunity to showcase their achievements in 4-H and earn their way to the State Recognition Event," commented a Central Area Recognition Committee member. "It is a pleasure to meet these young people, who exemplify what 4-H is all about... learning, communicating, leading, and giving back to their communities."
