In celebration of National 4-H week, community 4-H clubs in Nevada County decorated merchant windows in downtown Grass Valley. There are seven displays up through Saturday depicting the theme of this year’s event, “Centennial Celebration.” Displays are created by individual community clubs that promote the 4-H program, including individual projects, community service and youth leadership development.
Window displays are at the Bamboo Store, Cousin Jack’s Pasties, the former Kaos Clothing Store, Foothill Mercantile, Marshall’s Pasties, Mill Street Clothing and Tess’ Kitchen Store.
A panel of local judges, including Nevada County Agricultural Biologist Luci Wilson, Nevada County Consolidated Deputy Fire Marshal Terry McMahan and Nevada County Fair Deputy Director Robin Hauck evaluated the displays for awards.
The windows were ranked in the following order:
1st place - Chicago Park 4-H Club in The Bamboo Store
2nd place – Misty Mountain 4-H Club in Foothill Mercantile
3rd place – Kentucky Flat 4-H Club in Mill Street Clothing
4th place – Grass Valley 4-H Club in Tess’ Kitchen Store
5th place – Penn Valley 4-H Club in the former Kaos Clothing Store
6th place – Meadowlarks 4-H Club in Cousin Jack’s Pasties
7th place – Cool Hollow 4-H Club in Marshall’s Pasties
