Sixteen youth from throughout Lincoln County were at the Tomahawk Middle School on Saturday, April 22, where they participated in a variety of 4-H project sessions as part of Project Discovery Day. Youth participated in session on topics such as painting a fish family, mod podge, jewelry making, paper quilling, exploring science through making goo, growing and propagating plants, creating an Easter egg wreath or a purse from a handkerchief. Sponsored by the Lincoln County 4-H Leaders’ Association and University of Wisconsin-Extension 4-H Youth Development in Lincoln County, Project Discovery Day is designed to provide youth in 5-year-old kindergarten and older, a chance to discover what they can learn and do in 4-H. This event is open to all youth and 4-H members are encouraged to bring a friend.
During the day, sessions youth participated in were led by the following 4-H adult and older youth volunteers, community volunteers and University of Wisconsin-Extension staff members: Bailey Iwen, Becky Kludy, Beth Krueger, Lisa Krueger, Fern Langhoff, Dan Marzu, Jeanne Schmidt and Amy Steffens.
Another 4-H Project Discovery Day is being planned for fall in Merrill. Watch for more information and registration materials in late August/early September.
