Ohio 4-H engineering and woodworking highlights

Photos by Randall Reeder

Editor’s note: Randall Reeder retired seven years ago as an Extension Agricultural Engineer but still volunteers to help with the engineering-related 4-H projects and state contests he used to manage. In 2018 he is taking photos and posting them on Facebook.com/Ohio4HEngineeringRandall continues to Chair the Management Committee for the National 4-H Engineering Challenge. This has been an annual event since 1950, first at Richmond, VA, hosted by Virginia Tech, then at West Lafayette, IN, hosted by Purdue. There will be no 2018 event but will resume in September 2019, in Columbus, hosted by Ohio State University. Thanks Randall for taking your time to work with and highlight these very talented young people and for helping 4-H to shine bright even outside of the livestock show ring. Continue reading
