To the Editor,

For those who missed going to the Ellis County Youth Expo, you missed a real treat and a chance to see and talk to some really neat, talented and friendly young men and women. It made no difference whether you were getting an explanation about one of the projects or talking to the young man who built a fabulous trailer (which I would liked to have had) or watching the young men and women showing their animals.

Annette and I were there because our granddaughter was showing her animal, and we were not along with lots of moms and dads, grandmothers and grandfathers, aunts and uncles and brothers and sisters who were there in support of someone.

If you are sick and tired of hearing about all the “bad kids” and their antics, next year take time and go see what a really neat bunch of young ladies and young gentlemen are capable of achieving. THEY ARE AWESOME!
