Students Meet Animals During 4-H Day

Hundreds of kids got an up close and personal with animals on Friday at the Columbiana County Fairgrounds during 4-H day.

About 500 students from Columbiana County were invited out for the day, which is now in its fourth year.

The day is designed to teach students about the fair, the 4-H program and possibly get students to join 4-H.

Some of today’s activities were designed to let students know the program just is about more than the animals.

“What today is really (is) a day to show them that we’re really interested in the STEM activities, which is the science, technology, engineering and math,” said 4-H Extension Educator Katie Houk. “We’re really interested this year. We had a group teaching about the parliamentary procedure, which is the proper way to run a meeting, so they got to see a little demonstration about that.”
