Ohio State Fair Clock Trophy Winners

Since Ohio 4-H was not able to recognize those who were awarded a clock trophy at the 4-H state project judging, they invited those winners to submit a picture of them with their project. They used those pictures to create a video that recognized all clock trophy winners. You can watch the video here or below. Be sure to congratulate our Licking County winners if you see them!

High Honors for Licking County 4-H Volunteers

On December 1st Ohio 4-H recognized the volunteers and special award winners that would have been recognized at the Ohio 4-H Volunteer Conference in March. If you were unable to watch the program live, or would like to watch it again, you can do so here:
