Our Illinois 4-H Story

Trivia contest helps youth build friendships across county

The burning question in Logan County was "Are you smarter than a 4-Her." The answers came during a fast-paced trivia contest, sponsored, in part, by Farm Credit Illinois. Acting on a suggestion by the county's Expansion & Review Committee, the trivia contest hoped to provide opportunities for youth across the county to interact and build new relationships. Categories included sports, movies, famous 4-H alumni, impossible questions, cooking terms, name the year, history and Logan County 4-H.
