St. Landry Parish 4-H club members had the opportunity to practice the life skill of being interviewed for a job on Wednesday, Feb. 9, 2011, during the 4-H Job Interview Contest held at the Extension Office.  Each 4-H'er was individually interviewed and rated according to personal appearance, poise, selection of attire, response to interview questions and personal resume by judges in each category.
4-H activities such as this afford the youngsters the development of self-confidence while participating in a mock job interview without the pressures of real job seeking.

Each contestant received a blue, red or white ribbon award.  The overall winner in each category was awarded a bronze medal award.  Judges for the competition were Lee Hampton, Jennifer Hebert, Cindy Noel, Gloria Nye and Gerald Roberts.  Coordinating this event was 4-H agent, Lisa Benoit.
