Local 4H Students See Success at State Fair
Leadville members of the Broken Arrow 4H Club had a strong showing at the Colorado State Fair last month. The local kids range in age from 9 – 17 years, and each member came away with their own accomplishments whether qualifying at the state level, a feat in itself, or a Reserve Grand Championship. Congratulations!
For those unfamiliar with the program, 4-H is a community of young people, across America, learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills. While Leadville does not have its own “extension” the following Leadville kids participate actively in the Chaffee County Club: Broken Arrow.
