If you haven't done so already, please come see us at the office and pick up your premium checks and exhibits. Plan to join us at the Lincoln County Achievement night on October 23 and Logan County Achievement night on November 6. 4-H council is hosting a garage sale fundraiser on October 15-16.

Interested in the Citizenship Washington Focus Trip – June 2023?
Citizenship Washington Focus (CWF) is a civic education and leadership program organized by National 4-H Council and held at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland every summer for high school youth between the ages of 15 to 19 years of age. 4-H delegates from across the country broaden their appreciation and respect for themselves and others in the world through civic workshops, committees, field trips and social events.
Youth participants learn and practice skills intended to make them better citizens and successful individuals. Youth who have attended in the past have exhibited the following measurable outcomes:
· Strengthened communication, leadership, and citizenship skills.
· Increased understanding of civic and social responsibilities as they relate to the development of better citizens and leaders; and
· Improved respect, networking, and camaraderie with other youth from diverse backgrounds.
This is an educational program that requires a lot of planning and I feel part of this is for the youth members to plan their finances well ahead of the trip. The program will cost $3,500 per participant. Interested youth who are currently enrolled in 4-H may be eligible for a small scholarship through the Lincoln Co. 4-H council.
Contact Caitlyn Jacobson at (308) 532-2683 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
