Cloverbud Circles July 16th 2:00pm Life Skills Grade Day


The Life Skills Commitee is hosting “Cloverbud Circles” during the Life Skills Grade Day on July 16th, 2022 starting at 2:00pm at the Portage County Randolph Fair Grounds.

This is an opportunity open to ALL 4-H Cloverbuds enrolled with Portage County 4-H! This is an opportunity for cloverbuds to talk about what they have learned so far in their Cloverbud year! Have they been learning about a certain project area? Have they been working on a “project” of their own? Have they done something fun during a club meeting that they would like to share? Or do they have any general interests that they want to talk about?

Posters, projects, and different objects are encouraged to be brought to Cloverbud Circles!

If you have any questions please call the Portage County OSU Extension Office at 330-296-6432 or email

Click here for Requirements by Project

Visual Aid – this can include a poster, scrapbook, the project itself (no guns or archery/shooting equipment is allowed on the fairgrounds), or pictures of your project.

Interview with Judge – In order to be eligible to participate at State Fair, you must attend the respective Grade Day and interview with a judge. For county Project Completion only, an advisor can interview or review project competition guidelines.


Food & Nutrition – Saturday, July 16th from 9am-12pm


Portfolio – This has also been required at the state judging.  The notebook can be 2 or 3 ring or a folder that holds pages so they can be easily turned.

There should be one page only; single sided, for each activity covered in the project book.  This page should portray what was learned in that activity.  It can be hand written (neatly!), typed, shown in picture form, or a combination of these methods.  While it should be neatly done, it is not a “scrapbook” project!  The 4-H member will use this as they explain to the portfolio judge about their project, so the judge can follow along.
