Name, age, school: Hazel Rheingans, 13, student at Logos School

Tell me about what you’re doing.
“With the beef project, I have a heifer and a steer. You clip them to make the valuable parts look bigger, and the head you clip so it makes the rest of them look bigger. You clip the tail to make their backside look bigger, because that’s a valuable part.”

Are you in 4-H (Head, Heart, Hands and Health)?
“Yeah, I’m in the Mountain View club. This is my third year in the beef project, and my fifth year in 4-H.”

Do you do other things in 4-H as well?
“I have seven projects this year. Three of them are animals. Two are beef, and one is the poultry project.”

What type of poultry do you have?
“I have two turkeys. One is 4-H, and the other one is open class.”

Do you have a favorite 4-H project?
“I really like my knitting project. I like to knit, and the leader will answer questions that I have. I’ve made a pillowcase, a scarf — a lot of stuff.”

Which project is the most challenging?
“I think the beef project, because unlike knitting or something, the animals need to be fed every day. It’s not like you can just pick it up later.”

What do you like about the fair?
“It’s really fun to just hang out with the animals and the people who work at the fair and see the other exhibits.”
