The California State 4-H Field Day is the largest and most comprehensive educational event for 4-H youth and 4-H volunteer educators. 4-Hers from throughout California come together to compete. This field day provided many opportunities for members to grow in their ability to think, reason, and make logical and scientific judgments.
