On Monday afternoon, a group of five to seven-year-olds had the opportunity to experience what it is like to stand before a judge and have their "exhibit" critiqued.

The youngsters were participants in this summer's Cloverbud Camps, hosted by the Logan County 4-H Foundation.

At the camps children were able to spend time in a club-like environment, having fun and learning about specific projects, all related to the STEM initiative that is a popular teaching tool in today's schools.

They also learned about programs that are offered in local 4-H programs that also go along with the STEM.

4-H clubs are open to kids beginning at age eight. The Cloverbud Camps are also intended to create a greater interest in becoming a 4-H member when children reach the right age.

In its first year in 2016, the camp produced four youngsters who entered exhibits for judging. That number increased this year.

The exhibits are "judged" by members of the 4-H Ambassadors which is made up of teenage level 4-Hers from a variety of local clubs.
