PINE RIVER — Throughout Minnesota, 4-H educators, youths and community supporters are working together to prepare for a new year of summer showcase events, including the Cass County 4-H Showcase at the Cass County Fair in Pine River.

Starting on Tuesday, June 21, and concluding on Sunday, Cass County 4-H youths will share their skills and accomplishments with knowledgeable project judges and the community in showcase events encompassing a variety of project areas including animal sciences, expressive arts and communication, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), gardening and agriculture, family and consumer sciences, outdoor adventures, healthy living, civic engagement and leadership, environmental and earth sciences and more.

Extension Center for Youth Development Associate Dean and State 4-H Director Jennifer A. Skuza stated in a news release, “4-H’s priority is to provide learning and leadership experiences that guide youth in building relationships, developing communication techniques, and strengthening organizational skills,” and the 4-H Showcase is a way for the community to acknowledge the youths’ accomplishments in learning and leading over the past year.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at www.brainerddispatch.com. News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
