Service Learning Cloth Face Coverings Activity

Hello 4-H Families!

We know some of you are itching to help out our health care providers and other essential workers. Thank you for your giving spirit! During times of disease outbreak, preventing the accidental spread of a virus protects everyone. Young people can help to prevent the spread by sewing cloth face coverings. The service learning activity plan from Wisconsin 4-H includes guidance for adults and youth in safe and supportive service learning; step-by-step instructions with photos for how to make cloth face coverings that meet CDC guidelines; as well as reflection questions and opportunities to learn even more. Youth can get involved in this important project. Educators and families can support them in doing so safely.

The Cloth Face Coverings Activity Plan was developed by Wisconsin 4-H as part of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Division of Wisconsin. You can find the lesson plan here. 

Additionally, if you are planning on making face coverings for area hospitals, you will need to make sure the pattern given in the lesson plan above matches roughly what each hospital is asking for. You can find a list of hospitals with links to their specific plans below.

If you have questions, please let us know! And thank you for using your talents to keep yourselves, your family, and others safe.

Happy sewing!

Jefferson County 4-H Sparks Day

Sparks is about igniting passion. When youth have a passion for a subject, learning is fun.  This then allows for the developing  of self confidence and building on skills. Youth are able to gain skills for long term vocational success. 

The purpose of this competition is to highlight positive youth development in the County and to showcase our local food and producers.  The goal is also to bring back many past County 4-H Events, like the Foods Review, under the banner of Sparks Day. Over time we hope this event will grow and we will add new categories each year.

Entries are due in the Extension Office by Wednesday September 14th for judging. Judging will begin Wednesday afternoon and comment cards will be provided to all entries. Youth do not have to be present during judging. Awards can be seen at the Open House, September 15th.
