Youth celebrate National 4-H Week

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Members of the 4-H youth from across the nation "Kept It Green" as they celebrated 2008 National 4-H Week (October 5-11) by raising awareness about environmental issues and initiating environmental projects that make a positive difference in their communities. Cherokee County 4-H members asked their communities to get ready for the challenge by joining a 4-H club this year.

Throughout National 4-H week and the year, 4-H'ers solve problems in their communities, raise awareness about environmental issues, and make a difference for their futures in the spirit of 4-H's vision to create a world in which youth and adults learn, grow, and work together as catalysts for positive change. In Cherokee County, more than 153 4-H members and 35 volunteers are actively involved in 4-H.
To learn how to become a 4-H member or volunteer leader in Cherokee County, contact Brenda Medick, Youth & 4-H Coordinator at the ISU Cherokee County Extension Office at 225-6196 or the National 4-H Headquarters, which operates out of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), is the federal partner of 4-H programs implemented by the Cooperative Extension System of the nation's 106 land-grant colleges and universities and in local communities through 3,150 county Cooperative Extension offices.
