Largest 4-H Girl’s Club Convention

Historical 4-H Trivia. As reported in the July 1928 National Boys’ and Girls’ Club News. Not to be out done by the recent large 1928 political conventions, the 4-H club girls of Iowa under leadership of Miss Josephine Amquist, State Agent for Girls’ Club Work, staged what is said to be the largest 4-H girls’ club convention ever held. Two thousand five hundred girls and 100 leaders from 97 of the 99 Iowa counties attended. The comprehensive and inspiring, program will give added interest to 4-H club work in Iowa. (Iowa 4-H Girls Annual Meets were held for a number of years.)
