Festival of Arts – 4-H members and clubs from throughout the county prepare musical, drama, art, craft, photography and marketing selections to present at this festival. Judges critique the youth’s work with face-to-face interaction. Chosen pieces will advance to Area Festival of Arts. 4-H members can participate in both the speaking and/or demonstration contest. Judges evaluate the presentation and proved feedback. Winners advance to the Area Festival of Arts, and the age-eligible demonstrators can also advance to the Wisconsin State Fair.

Clover College- This event brings all of our Cloverbuds (kindergarten- second grade) together on a winter morning to participate in fun and educational sessions in 6 areas- arts and crafts, nutrition, animal science, mechanical science, recreation activities and natural science. This event rotates around the county to different locations. Please see the Cloverbud page for more information.

Junior Leaders Lock-In: This event is held annually after the Clover College in January/ February. Junior Leaders meet to do a community service project, have time together, and have an organizational meeting.

Fur Fin & Feather: This event is a live animal exhibition that is open to 4-H and FFA members in 3rd through 13th grade. Enrollment in rabbit, poultry, cat, or small pet project is not required. Youth in kindergarten through second grade can enter a special mounted picture class. Those who enter this class will have the opportunity to share with the judge information about the pet shown in the picture and how they care for it. Face- to- face judging with the youth’s cat, small pet, pet poultry, or pet rabbit allows youth to share their pet project knowledge.
