4-Hers Learn About life

STATELINE NEWS -- Olivia Runne’s recent trip to Finland served as inspiration for one of the 4-H projects she entered in this year’s Winnebago County Fair.

Runne, 17, of Rockford, visited Finland for about a month this summer as part of the 4-H Exchange Program. Runne’s project featured photographs that she took during her trip.

“I used a lot of the same photos that I took there, and I even brought some of the candies back here with me,” Runne said.

Runne traveled to the Scandinavian country with more than 20 other 4-H members from around the United States. She said they went hiking, enjoyed Finnish cuisine and visited tourist attractions, adding that it’s similar to the U.S.
