The Ogle County 4-H Federation hosted its annual 4-H Penny Carnival at the Blackhawk Center in Oregon on March 7.
Penny Carnival is much like a fun fair, but features games dreamed up and designed by the 4-H clubs in the county.
Twelve of the counties 14 clubs participated, dreaming up 13 games, based on the theme “Build Your Future with 4-H” and encouraged the development of a wide range of game types.
Cash prizes were awarded to two clubs for games determined to be “Most Entertaining,” and two clubs for games determined to be “Most Creative.” Congratulations to all the following:
Most Entertaining: By-Y-Badgers 4-H Club, Byron (Demo Daze) and Byron Emerald Eagles 4-H Club (Kurplunk)
Most Creative: Leaf River Busy Beavers 4-H Club (Light It Up) and Blackhawk Crossings 4-H Club, Oregon/Mt. Morris (Duck Toss)
Proceeds from the night will be divided equally among participating clubs. Many thanks to the hundreds of Ogle County families who attended!
