The Licking County 4-H Food and Fashion Board will be hosting a Project Judging Workshop at the Extension Office on Saturday, June 9th from 10:00-11:00 a.m. This is a great opportunity for new members to get an idea what project judging will be like as well as have their questions answered. Members will have project examples available for members to view and will be doing modeling practice for those taking clothing projects. While a large portion of the program will focus on food and clothing judging, there will also be a portion dedicated to special interest projects.
Thank you to everyone who raised their hand for 4-H! Ohio is once again the winner of this national contest, beating out the nearest competitor by over 3,500 votes. As the top finisher, Ohio 4-H has won $20,000 from National 4-H! We appreciate everyone who voted for Ohio and are anxiously waiting to see how well Licking County did within the state.
