Olivia Akers

How long have you been in 4-H?

I had one year as a Cloverbud. This is my first year as a full member.

How much time do you spend preparing for the county fair?

I have spent lots of time learning about cats so I can talk about her. I spend a couple of weeks on my visual arts projects.

What are you most proud of in your 4-H work?

I like that the 4-H work gives me an excuse to play with my pet and do my favorite activity - art!

What was your reaction to winning awards?

Everyone got a ribbon last year but I was still proud and excited.
