For many years, Buffalo County 4-H sponsored the Pink Party following the 4-H Awards Program at the Buffalo County Fair. The Pink Party was to recognize all the 4-H members who received a pink ribbon (fourth place) on a 4-H exhibit. It was an opportunity to acknowledge all the hard work youth put into their 4-H projects throughout the year and to applaud effort and learning all in once place. The Pink Party had all the fixings for a great pink celebration including cake with pink frosting, strawberry ice cream and wafers and pink lemonade.
Well, in 2020 we’re bringing back the Pink Party!
4-H members will submit a photo of themselves with their best 4-H project and a short statement of their 4-H project work. Any 4-H projects featured at the Pink Party will still be eligible for exhibit at the 2021 Buffalo County Fair. Each member will be featured on the Pink Party page and on our Division of Extension Buffalo County Facebook page. Some youth may be featured in upcoming print publications and local newspapers. Each 4-H member that participates will receive a commemorative 2020 4-H Pink Party rosette and individual pink party supplies to celebrate their success! The Buffalo County 4-H club that features the largest percentage of their members on the Pink Party page will also receive $50 to conduct their own pink party in the future!
