Creative people continue to find fun ways to celebrate traditional events, even during a pandemic. Mass 4-H has proven once again that staying at home does not have to dampen kids’ spirits.
Halloween was reformulated this year to encourage 4-Hers to carve pumpkins, dress their animals and/or themselves in a costume, or build a scarecrow. Some youth learned new skills including carving and sewing then submitted photographs of their creations for a Halloween awards night in late October.
In all, 29 entries were submitted from 14 clubs across the state. The participants will be emailed fun certificates indicating their award. Carrie Sears, UMass animal science program manager organized this spooktacular event along with judges Tom Waskiewicz, Meg McDermott, Cathy Acampora, Pam LeFave and Lauren Dubois.
