Bread was hot, and anticipation was high at Youth Fair Bread Competition

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Cookies, pies, and bread were some of the favorites on Wednesday's second showing for the Food and Consumer Science Competition at the Youth Fair.

The competition happened in the upstairs room of the George H. Henderson Jr. Expo Center from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Students had been working on their recipes for months and while the bread was hot, the anticipation was high as 4-H club students and FCCLA students prepared their bread, made sure it was sliced correctly, and tasted oh-so-good for the judges.

"We have a variety of judges from across the country that ask the students questions and they have a score sheet. They look for a good presentation from the student and a good product," said Jennifer Cumbie, a superintendent for the Food and Consumer Science Show.

Most of the students competing in the food competition, were also competing in several other competitions including the animals shows. The Ag Mechanics Show will start on Thursday at 9 a.m., followed by the Market Goat Show at 10 a.m. the Market Lamb Show at 2 p.m., and the Junior Horse Show at 4 p.m. Check in for steers, commercial heifers and beef heifers will be from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
