Hubbard County 4-H students gathered on President’s Day to work on several different hands-on projects and activities.

4-H Project Day was sponsored by the 4-H Ambassadors, which are youth leaders. The sessions were at Riverside United Methodist Church.

Students had a chance to try new projects or learn more about a project they are already involved in. Each participant signed up for different sessions and had a chance to be part of four different projects.

More than 20 different hands-on projects were offered. Cloverbuds had a chance to do ooey, gooey science experiments, others learned how to decorate cakes and some students learned about shoreline habitat.

Other projects included the food review, sand art, the lake game, “let’s make ice cream,” aquatic robotics and sewing.


Between each session, all 4-H members came together to sing camp songs and play games.
