4-H Camp Kidwell is hosting the 17th Annual Festival of Trees, December 5-8, 2019. All schools, 4-H Clubs and other youth groups are invited to create hand-made decorations for a tree to be displayed and sold at the Festival of Trees with their name displayed as the decorators. When the public visits the Festival they can vote for their favorite contest tree. Votes are placed with Quarters (any coin or bills are accepted) and proceeds from the “votes” are split between those groups receiving the most votes. In years past the group receiving the most votes have received $30 and $60. We have heard of the money being used for a pizza party, doing a community service project as well as supporting events of a 4-H Club. Please consider participating in 4-H Camp Kidwell’s 17th Annual Festival of Trees School Holiday Tree Decorating Contest.

We’ll provide lights and stand; you bring the decorations (all we ask is that the decorations are durable (definitely no glass), can withstand being in a warm setting
(no candy) and are wired to the trees). Camp will be open decorate your tree after Thanksgiving, starting on Friday, November 29 until Wednesday, Dec. 4, each day 10 am to 6 pm.
