National 4-H Week - October 5-11
4-H youth from across the nation will be “Keeping It Green” as they celebrate 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. During the week, you can help spread the word by wearing a 4-H shirt, inviting a friend to a 4-H meeting or just by spreading the word about 4-H. 4-H is a community of 6 million young people across America learning leadership, citizenship and life skills. 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. Learn more about the 4-H by visiting the local 4-H office at 90 S. Main St., Sparta, NC or by calling Amy Lucas at 336-372-5597.
