Rimbey 4-H Club competes in a new grooming contest: Best costume

Members of Rimbey 4-H Beef Club dressed their steers to compete in a costume contest.

In a regular 4-H season the club members have a final show with grooming competitions among others and award ceremonies. This year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, their show was cancelled.

To instill some fun into their time at home because of the virus, the club decided to have their own competition virtually: a costume contest.

“We had 27 members and had over half of them compete,” says Rimbey 4-H assistant leader Cassidy Thebeau.

The members got creative to create costumes for their 4-H projects. From flower crowns to painted fur, everything was fair play.

One member even managed to incorporate the pandemic into their project’s costume, dressing his project as “Cowvid-20”.

The members look forward to finding out the winner of the costume contest, which was posted to the Rimbey 4-H club Facebook page, at their virtual award ceremony coming up.
