Cumberland 4-H’ers are getting ready for the 48th annual 4-H EXPO planned for March 9–12 at the Cumberland Mall. 4-H clubs and members are creating unique posters, 4-H signs and club exhibits for this four-day event, showcasing the 4-H program.
“We’re excited to have the public see all the great opportunities in Cumberland County 4-H for boys and girls starting in kindergarten all the way through high school,” says Donna Griebau, Cumberland County 4-H program assistant.
The Poster Contest encourages 4-H’ers to express their creative, artistic and imaginative talents. Paint, crayons, chalk or ink are some of the art media used to make posters or to design a collage or use photographs to create their posters.
Participation ribbons will be given for all entries. Trophies and other awards are being presented for the highest-scoring posters and club exhibits in the Junior (grades 4-7) and Senior (grades 8-13) divisions.
