HINESBURG — For 4-H’ers from 11 4-H clubs in northwestern Vermont, April 13 was a day to show off their project work, achievements and talent at the annual Northwest 4-H Regional Day.
They gathered at Champlain Valley Union High School in Hinesburg for the annual event, which was sponsored by University of Vermont (UVM) Extension 4-H. In addition to earning ribbons, many of the participants, ages 8 and up, were selected to perform again at 4-H State Day, May 11, at the Barre Civic Center in Barre, with their stage presentations, illustrated talks, speeches and demonstrations or in the fashion revue. Several 4-H’ers also will share their tabletop displays, posters, photographs, videos and maker-tinker creations.
