What is a Window Display?
4-H Window Displays promote 4-H in Barron County. By promoting 4-H, window displays may help recruit members or raise awareness within a community that 4-H members play an active role. The businesses that allow 4-H displays in their windows show that they support youth development in Barron County.
4-H Window Displays are up during National 4-H Week, which is always the first full week of October.
In 2018, it’s October 7-13th.
A club/project group should pick a theme and build their display around that theme. Window displays range from taking up an entire window and using props to creating a large poster which hangs in a business window.
Why should your club or project group do a Window Display?
The Barron County 4-H Association is offering CASH AWARDS to participate!
1st Place – $100; 2nd Place – $75; 3rd Place – $50; 4th Place – $25
All other clubs/groups who follow the rules and have all components within their window display will receive $15 for participating!
