2019 Escambia County 4-H Holiday Bake-Off was a delicious success

On Monday December 16, Escambia County 4-H hosted its third annual Holiday Bake-Off.  The Holiday Bake-off was a success as 38 different 4-H members submitted 91 delicious entries that were all judged on their own merit.  Later that evening, 4-H members and their families showed up at the Langley Bell 4-H Center to enjoy the awards ceremony and all of the goodies.

All Holiday Bake-off entries were dropped off between the hours of 7:00am and 11:00am.  The entries were placed in one of 12 different divisions and then judged in the early afternoon.  The awards ceremony started at 6:30 pm.  All of the 4-H members were treated to a full crowd as they got their pictures taken.  Division winning entries received the coveted golden spoon for all of their hard work.  Cloverbuds, 4-H members ages 5-7, also were able to have entries, though their desserts were not judged.  Cloverbuds received a participation ribbon and golden spoon for their hard work.

As part of a community service project, 4-H members were challenged to bring a toy to be given to a local charity.  Many toys were donated to Toys for Tots to brighten the holiday season for local youth.
