SPRINGFIELD-Springfield was the place to be on March 18, as 4-H’ers enthusiastically sang, danced, and shared their project work with friends, family, and the public.

The annual Southeast Vermont 4-H Regional Day, featuring 4-H club members from Windham and Windsor counties, took place at Springfield High School.

Organized by University of Vermont Extension 4-H in these two counties, the event attracted 48 participants and 91 exhibits including stage presentations, action exhibits, illustrated talks, tabletop displays, photos, and more. Emcees were 4-H’ers Lilia Kocsis and Garrette Shanks, both from Vernon.

The winners in each category will represent the southeast region at 4-H State Day, May 13, along with top exhibitors from other counties in the state. State Day will be held at the Barre Civic Center in Barre.
