4-H Heritage Quilt Trail

The Wayne County 4-H Heritage Quilt Trail is a community service initiative led by the Wayne County 4-H Ambassadors Team, a group of local high school teens active in the Wayne County 4-H Program. Their goal is to become more civically involved and to strengthen the influence of 4-H throughout the county.

Our Project

The purpose of the quilt trail was to establish a long lasting, county-wide beautification project.

What We’ve Achieved

  • Increased skills in public speaking, construction and painting and garnered local support
  • Conducted over 20 presentations to local leaders to promote the trail
  • Conducted a workshop at the National Association of Extension 4-H Agents in Portland, Oregon in October 2015
  • Conducted a workshop at the State CEOS Conference in Weston, WV in October 2016
  • Secured nearly $2,000 in support from the WV Humanities Council to support the expansion of the trail
  • Caught the attention of WVU President E. Gordon Gee, who commissioned the team to make a quilt block for him
  • Increased interest of county residents to join and support the trail.
