Future of 4-H looks bright with Clover Kids moving up
The future of Washington County 4-H looks bright as an active group of third-grade Clover Kids celebrated their graduation during the 2013 Washington County Fair. This fall they are all invited to join the 4-H program as a fourth-grader. Twenty-four third-graders participated in the graduation ceremony where they received a special diploma and 4-H gear. The graduates were able to share their favorite Clover Kid memory with the audience. Washington County Fair Queen second-runner up, Bridget Nebel, assisted with the ceremony.
Clover Kids are youth in grades kindergarten through third grade who meet traditionally once a month with their club to play games, experiment, craft and explore in non-competitive ways. Washington County has eight Clover Kids clubs with more than 160 members this past year.
