With almost three weeks until the Washington County Fair, 4-H members, Clover Kids, leaders and volunteers are busy getting ready.
One unique event to the Washington County Fair is the Clover Kid mentoring program. Several department areas pair a clover kid with experienced 4-H exhibitors to learn about that project area. Clover Kid goat mentoring pairs 2nd grade Clover Kids with a 4-H goat showman. They meet several times before the fair at the 4-Her’s farm getting to know each other while the 4-Her mentors the younger member about the goat species.
The Clover Kids then get to show their mentor’s goat in the show ring at the Clover Kid Goat Show. This show is immediately following the 4-H/FFA Goat Show on Tuesday, July 20 and is the perfect example of the partnerships and leadership opportunities that happen in 4-H.
