Nearly 100 4-H members between the ages of 5 to 19, got the chance to show off their projects that they’ve dedicated a lot of time. Some of the animals presented were dairy goats, sheep, and pigs.

”4-H really creates true leaders, and creates spark in young people to show that their valued in the world,“ said Sarah Chvilicek, Program Manager of 4-H Washoe County.

The 4-H program aims to help the kids gain a sense of responsibility by caring for their animals, along with building friendships and providing experiences the kids will carry with them for the rest of their lives.

“4-H is so fun, and its such a good learning environment, and its so good because you can add it to extracurriculars and you can just add it to so many good things,” Tenly Natorian, 13-years-old, 4-H member.

4-H members who advanced during Sunday morning’s show will compete in next month’s statewide junior livestock show.
