CALLING ALL PROJECT LEADERS: WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We are asking each of the 4-H clubs to send photos and/or sample projects to be included on our 2017 “Join 4-H” fair display. Photos and sample projects can be brought into the WSU Extension office: Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:00 am – 4:30 pm. If you cannot bring them in and wish to make other arrangements, have digital copies, or have any questions please email Dixie Chichester at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will need all samples and photos as soon as possible, through July. Below is a list of photos we are hoping to display as well as any others that show the true spirit and fun of 4-H. We are hoping to show a much bigger picture of 4-H.
Arts and crafts: Photos of clubs and/or members creating any arts and crafts
Baking/Cooking: Photos of clubs and/or members baking or cooking
Crochet and leather Crafts: A sample project of each
Know your government: photo of any that captures this club’s main idea
Pocket Pals: Would like a photo that shows kids all standing together with their pets
(Please include what types of pets are in photo) or photos of individual members with their pets
Fair photos: Great photos from past fairs
Any others that you want to send in would be great
Please take note not all photos or projects will necessarily be displayed. Also, be sure to have written consent to use photos in this context by everyone in photos. Thank you!
