4-H Week: 4-H Open House to showcase opportunities

Washington County 4-H will host an open house today, March 8, at the Junior Fair Building on the county fairgrounds from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Kids complete hands-on projects in areas like health, science, agriculture and citizenship, in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult volunteers and are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles.

Kids experience 4-H in every county in the country–through in-school and after-school programs, community clubs and 4- H camps.

The 4-H Open House will be a fun-filled evening of games, prizes, robotics, small animals, 4-H membership information for grade K-12. Each station will provide interactive and hands-on activities to engage the children and adults. Two fundraising opportunities will be shared to help youth earn their summer camp registration fees. Youth that register for 4-H Camp at the event will receive a $10 discount.
