Jam, decorated tables, growing vegetables, photography, creating a cutting board, baking … when it comes to participating in the static competitions in the county and state fairs, Delaney Cheloha, 13, has done it all.
And when she talks about it, her shy demeanor melts away and a confident smile takes over.
Six years ago, Delaney joined 4H participating in a variety of static competitions including gardening, baking and more. As a Platte County resident, she is part of the Dandy Bakers 4-H Club from Platte County.
As in years past, Delaney’s submissions have grown. This year she has a big entry – a steampunk decorated mannequin. This year, for this project, she earned Grand Champion at the Platte County Fair and a purple ribbon and earned a green ribbon which was a special recognition called the 4-H Design Gallery in the Nebraska State Fair.
