4-H members participate in sewing, food, and craft projects throughout the year, creating a wonderful array of handmade goods and visual arts that are showcased during this event.  Come cheer on 4-H'ers as they compete at the county level.

  • For the Favorite Foods Day traditional competition, members must prepare a dish, place setting, and menu display. Each contestant should be knowledgeable about the preparation of their dish and the nutritional value of the entire menu. Competitors must be enrolled in a 4-H food project to participate, but there is the Pack a Healthy Lunch Challenge that is open to all 4-H'ers. 
  • The Arts, Crafts and Creative Exhibits expo is a handcraft and other project competition open to all 4-H members, regardless of 4-H project enrollment.  We encourage you to also consider entering your handmade items to the San Mateo County Fair

NEW THIS YEAR:  Recycled craft category, which encourage youth to create something out of items that would normally go into the trash

  •  Virtual Film Festival. This contest gives youth an opportunity to show their creative visual artwork in the categories of animation, documentary, drama, comedy, promotional and commercial. We will show some of the videos at the award ceremony.
