Several 4-H'ers from across LaSalle Parish entered crafts in the Valentine's Day Craft Contest held during the month of February. 4-H'ers who entered this contest were asked to make a craft using items from around the house that would have normally been thrown away. This contest gave an opportunity to 4-H'ers to be creative, less wasteful, and thoughtful, as these crafts were taken to a local nursing home to be given to residents as a Valentine's Day gift.
Several 4-H'ers from Jena Junior High School made Valentine's Day cards to be taken to the Nursing Home with the crafts, but were requested not to be judged as part of the contest.
