Calling All Youth in Wexford & Missaukee Counties: Free Create a Candy Company Challenge

Life is about to get a little sweeter for the youth of Wexford and Missaukee counties.4h Candy

Those who are ages 8-19 are summoned to a challenge by 4-H, a non-profit organization whose mission is to really engage the youth to their fullest potential. The challenge is a series of missions that will include creating candy, market research, and brand creation. This will ultimately lead them to create their very own candy company. It will be a mix of an online scavenger hunt and a physical candy-making kit provided by 4-H. Because candy creation requires working with a microwave and/or a cookstove, younger youth will need adult assistance and supervision to complete some of the missions.

This is a free program and any youth in the Wexford and Missaukee counties can register here by May 17th. Each participant will need to pick up a candy-making kit from their local MSU Extension office during scheduled pick-up times the last week of May.

During enrollment, youth should select SPIN: 4-H Create a Candy Company as their club. For any questions, contact Brandie Sigler at or 231-920-7748.
