2021 Life Skills Festival and Field Day

This event is an opportunity for 4-H members to submit items they have made for competition at the county level. 4-H members participate in sewing, food, and craft projects throughout the year, creating a wonderful array of hand made goods that we will showcase digitally after the events.

Due to the pandemic, we are modifying our events. We will not have any spectators at the events this year due to limited capacity requirements. We will be following the in-person guidelines found here.

Fashion Revue - none this year.
