The Payson CloverKids 4-H Club wrapped up the 2006 year by entering their "Recycled Windchimes," group project in the Northern Gila County Fair.
"They all received awards for their efforts," 4H Youth Development Agent Lani Hall said.
The CloverKids educational program prepares children 5 to 8 years of age for eventually membership in the 4-H club.
Its mission statement says the program is designed is to help youth learn social skills, reinforce formal school programs through informal, noncompetitive experiential educational projects and activities, develop self-esteem and build family strengths.
"The members have learned about cooking and eating nutritious snacks, taken field trips, made lots of crafts and learned about recycling and their environment," Hall said. The wind chimes project was part of the club members' recycling efforts.
Raylene Phillips and Jennifer Blanchard have been volunteer leaders of the Payson CloverKids for the past two years.
