Walnut Way's Neighborhood Lift Up (NLU) is an annual clean up day where residents, partners, and volunteers gather to clean up the neighborhood and get our gardens ready for the spring. At Walnut Way's NLU 2012, our 4-H Club youth helped in the clean up efforts and also led an art table in which children made butterflies and flowers to celebrate the new spring.
The Walnut Way 4-H Club created a song and video and entered it into the Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) video competition to share their talents and reflect on their civic engagement. The Walnut Way youth were awarded by their efforts by winning the GYSD competition! $500 was awarded to an organization of their choice, which they chose, Walnut Way. Great job Walnut Way 4-H Club.
