“We are excited to continue this partnership with Cedar Crest, which allows 4-H clubs across the state to work together and put into practice the goals and mission of 4-H,” says Brenda Scheider, Director of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation.  “Congratulations to the Baraboo Valley 4-H Club for their teamwork experimenting with different flavors to create the winning flavor.”

Cedar Crest is a long-time 4-H supporter.  The ice cream flavor contest is just one way that 4-Hers partner with Cedar Crest.  The winning flavor in the 2013 contest was CranRaspberry Cheesecake created by the Sunnyside Climbers 4-H Club of Plover.  In 2014 the Dykesville Dolphins 4-H Club crafted the centennial flavor Udder Delight. The winner for 2015 was Waupaca County’s Friendly Valley 4-H Club’s Big Muddy.  Last year the Badger Boosters 4-H Club of West Bend created Deep Space.
