4-H Cupcake Wars

Members of the Welsh Prairie Livewires 4-H Club wait for cupcake experts to review their display at the annual Columbia County 4-H Cupcake Wars event on March 9. Youth created cupcakes with a Wisconsin theme and displayed their work to showcase team participation and building. Pictured, from left, Natalie Plahuta, Briella Brusveen, Gretta Hahn and Gwen Hahn.

Columbia County 4-H, a part of UW-Madison–Division of Extension, will observe National 4-H Week, Oct. 6-12, by showcasing the experiences that 4-H offers young people, and will highlight the 4-H youth in the community who work each day to make a positive impact on those around them.

The theme is “Inspire Kids to Do,” which highlights how 4-H encourages young people to take part in hands-on learning experiences in areas such as health, science, agriculture and civic engagement.

On Oct. 12, the New Directions 4-H Club of Portage will meet and greet the public at the Portage Tractor Supply Company and share a display of their 4-H stories and examples of their 4-H project work and animals for the public to learn about.
