UF/IFAS Washington County Extension Update

Published: Monday, February 4, 2013 at 01:58 PM.

Also in March, club officers will have the chance to attend 4-H Day at the Capitol, where they learn how the various aspects of Florida government operate.  Members of Top Nocks 4-H Club and Sure Shots 4-H Club will compete on the state level for individual and team titles.

Throughout each month, 4-H community clubs meet to practice the skeet and trap shooting as well as archery, learn more about livestock, create sewing projects and focus on biological sciences.  There are many active community clubs in which you can involve your child for high quality, hands-on educational experiences. 

In April, students in grades four thru six will begin the 4-H Tropicana Public Speaking Program.  As one of the most successful 4-H in the Classroom programs, students are taught the art of public speaking from selecting their topic all the way to speech delivery techniques and skills.  After competing in classroom and school-level contests, the top public speakers will compete on the county level.

For more information on 4-H Youth Development Programs, contact Julie Pigott Dillard at juliepd@ufl.edu or 850.638.6180.  Extension programs are open to everyone.
