Being Involved in 4-H

This was Olivia's first year in Cloverbuds (for K-2nd grade students who aren't old enough yet to go into "regular" 4-H). Cloverbuds were able to enter four projects that they did into the county fair.

Olivia entered a pillow she made in her Little House in the Big Woods class, a set of painted matroyshka dolls with horses on each doll, a paint-by-numbers picture of a dog in a doghouse, and a sewn/stuffed Santa decoration.

As the older children had to do, Cloverbuds are interviewed by a judge about their knowledge about the project they did, the goals they had for the project, what they learned, what they would do differently, etc.

Olivia's projects are behind her - to the left and right. She's holding the ribbons awarded to Cloverbuds.
