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"
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
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.
