Later that evening, 4-H Cloverbuds had a Show and Tell. Designed for 5-year-old kindergarten through second graders, the 4-H Cloverbud project is designed with programs that are developmentally appropriate and activity-focused. The focus is on developing a specific skill rather than the 4-H projects that require a long-term planned course of study in a specific area.
That evening, Gage Smith demonstrated his project about his trip to Honduras for the Cloverbud’s. Smith, who has been an active 4-H and FFA member, graduated from Southern Local High School last spring and plans to attend Ohio State University this fall.
