ST. CHARLES – Kane County 4-H is hosting the annual 4-H International Night on from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Kane County Fairgrounds, 525 S. Randall Road, St. Charles.

According to a news release, guests will discover the geography, culture and food of many countries.

“The 4-H Passport to the World project opens up other countries and cultures for our 4-H members,” stated Doris Braddock, 4-H youth development program coordinator, in the news release. “At International Night, these youth will share what they learned with each other and community members. The overall experience helps them grow as global citizens and gain skills in presenting to others.”

4-H members spend months studying a specific country and then work together with their club to create a booth displaying the geographical and cultural aspects of the nation. All prepare craft stations or foods to reflect their study country, the release stated. Some of the countries that will be featured include Argentina, India, Madagascar, Nigeria, Poland, and Russia.

“Fun, hands-on activities like International Night provide a positive learning environment,” Braddock stated in the news release. “It is just one of several 4-H opportunities that help youth gain a better understanding about the world around them.”

The event will be held in the Dining Hall, at the northeast corner of the fairgrounds. Entrance should be available from Randall Road (when heading south) or by using Oak Street.

All ages are welcome to attend. A suggested donation for admission is $1 per person for ages 8 and older. To learn more about Kane County 4-H, visit http://go.illinois.edu/KaneCounty4H.
