Local 4-H members shared interesting facts, traditions, and history about several different countries during the 2022 Kendall County 4-H International Night at the Kendall County Fairgrounds in April.
“Our 4-H clubs and youth embraced learning about another country and its cultures, economy, government, arts, sports, and more,” says Kim Eisnaugle, 4-H Program Coordinator. “The 4-H Passport to the World project encourages youth to be informed local and global citizens and to gain a better understanding of the world around them.”
This year, 4-H clubs studied and presented projects featuring Cypress, Egypt, Greece, Italy, and the United States/Hawaii. Groups were evaluated on knowledge of subject matter, how well they presented the information, explanation of the project exhibit, and the exhibit itself.
The top prize went to Boots, Blue Jeans, and Bows 4-H Club members for their presentation and display about Cyprus. They also earned the State Fair delegate seat. Renegades, Rebels, and Rogues 4-H Club earned reserve champion and State Fair alternate with an exhibit on Hawaii. Other 4-H clubs that presented included: LaMenu Modelle, Little Rockets, and Stagecoach Trailblazers.
