Ohio 4-H Cloverbot Challenge

The Cloverbot Challenge is a really great opportunity for Cloverbuds to get more involved with the 4-H program. Cloverbuds form teams in their club or throughout the county, learn about this year’s topic, Fabulous Food, and then bring their poster and LEGO project to the state event on May 21, 2016 at the Ohio 4-H Center. Feedback from participants indicates that youth that take part in the Cloverbot Challenge really enjoy their 4-H experience as it gives them a project to work on and a goal to look forward to. Every member that participates in the event receives a medal and is recognized on stage with their club/team during the ceremony that day. The deadline to register is April 15, but if clubs want to order one of the greatly discounted LEGO kits, they must register by March 11. Please let Beth Boomershine (boomershine.10@osu.edu) or Sally McClaskey (mcclaskey.12@osu.edu) know if you have questions about the program.
