Cottonwood County 4-H will hold a Project Day Spotlight Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at Windom Area High School. Registration begins at 8:45 a.m.
This event, which is open to 4-H and non-4-H youth, is free thanks to funds from the United Drive. However, participants in some of the sessions may be capped. Interested youth are asked to register by Friday by calling the extension office at 831-4022.
In this Project Day Spotlight, participants will learn about different project areas and make exhibits that are ready to show at the county fair.
Youth can participate in three of the six sessions as two will be held at the same time.
Sessions running from 9 to 9:55 a.m., allow youth to create a tie-dye T-shirt or Cloverbuds (youth in grades K-3) can learn about cotton and make a tie-dye T-shirt. Cloverbuds will also receive a free book related to cotton. Youth are encouraged to wear old clothes or bring a paint shirt for the tie-dye sessions.
During the 10 to 10:55 a.m. session, youth can learn about being a treasurer, paint a gourd or follow a trail using GPS.
In the 11 to 11:55 a.m. session, participants have the opportunity to plant a garden in a container, do glass etching or construct a rocket. Participants for glass etching should bring a glass item on which to do their etching.
