It turns out that 4-H isn’t just about animals. It’s also about chili.
More accurately, it’s a community of more than 100 public universities across the nation that provides experiences where young people learn by doing. Kids complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture and citizenship.
At the annual Solano County 4-H Project Skills Day & Chili Cook Off, held Saturday at Sierra Vista K-8 School in Vacaville, 4-Hers, who range in age from five to 19, showed what they have learned and also competed in a chili contest.
