WASHINGTON COUNTY — Washington County 4-H clubs are off to a great start with nearly 100 youth already enrolled and active in its programs.   The Top Nocks 4-H Club is still enrolling members who are interested in learning or bettering their archery skills.   The Livestock 4-H Club is expanding its focus this year to include not only beef and swine projects, but also goat, rabbit and poultry projects.  During the Washington County Youth Fair, 4-H’ers will show their rabbit projects and earn ribbons and rosettes.  Poultry projects will also earn ribbons and rosettes at the 2013 WCYF.  There will also be a jackpot goat show.  Showmanship and grooming workshops will be offered for youth to learn how to participate in these new events.

The Sure Shots 4-H Club has also begun practicing and looks to defend a five year state winning streak in the overall intermediate and senior team scores.
