Thirty-six 4-H members from Delaware, Clayton, Fayette, and Winneshiek County visited the Iowa Hall of Pride and the State of Iowa Capital in Des Moines on March 10. The Iowa Hall of Pride started with a great Iowa History lesson and why we should be Iowa Proud. Next, 4-H-ers participated in a scavenger hunt and learned about many famous Iowans.
