If you had the opportunity this summer to visit the Warren County Youth Fair, you likely witnessed 4-H youth working, exhibiting projects, providing leadership to younger 4-H’ers, and having fun. The opportunities for fun, learning and leadership did not stop here.Teens who qualified through membership in 4-H, completion of projects, and demonstrating leadership qualities travelled to the 2018 New York State Fair in Syracuse in August to represent Warren County 4-H.
Warren County youth hosted an insect making craft activity and helped youth make 300 insects from upcycled bottle caps. The bugs had hand-colored wings, two or more eyes, and antennae or tails based on the child’s interest.This craft went along with a pollinator identification game, where youth placed the insects they knew to be pollinators on flowers.
In addition, four of our sixNYS youth served as Teen Leaders in areas that included:project evaluations, sustainable energy, and Shooting Sports as well as assisting with the 1st 4-H Day at the NYS Fair in Chevy Court. During both the Warren County Youth Fair and NYS Fair youth exemplified teamwork, inclusiveness, and cooperation while representing the county and the4-H program.
