4-H Quilt Challenge and Community Service Project

The 4-H Quilt Challenge has a new look! We are proud to announce the changes to the statewide program will allow more youth to be involved and participate. It is now the 4-H Quilt Challenge Contest and Community Service Project. Specific rules and guidelines will be available on Oct. 16th at: http://fcs. The Quilt Challenge contest will focus on the creation of youthful quilts for Project Linus or adult patriotic quilts for our service men and women through the Quilts of Valor program. All quilts to be judged must be registered on 4-H Connect by April
15, 2013 and the quilt delivered by the May 1, 2013 deadline. Quilts will be judged and photographed with winners posted online. Following judging quilts will be returned to the participants to be donated to one of the organizations listed above. The community service portion of the Quilt Challenge will focus on the creation and donation of blankets, afghans and quilts to either Project Linus or a local charity selected by the individual or group. This includes fleece blankets, quilted blankets (not to be judged), and knitted or crocheted afghans. These blankets will not be judged. An on-line site will be provided for individuals and clubs to report their local donations. Our goal is to donate 254 blankets to charity before Roundup 2013. For more information go to:
