2017 4-H Week Window Display Winners!

This year's 4-H week theme was "Around the World with 4-H." Five clubs constructed window displays in local businesses to help educate about 4-H and countries around the world. All of the clubs did a fantastic job of demonstrating what 4-H has to offer. First Place went to Liberty Hill Rangers! Their window display was in the American Legion along the main street of Greenup. Second place was awarded to Work and Play! Their window was in The Depot restaurant in Neoga. Congratulations to our first two clubs!
