4-H is full of opportunities! Here, we will keep you updated on the latest and greatest that our county, district, and state 4-H programs have to offer.
TO: All 4-H Volunteers
On behalf of the Texas 4-H Youth Development Program, we are pleased to announce and share the schedule for the upcoming Virtual 4-H Summit. This virtual professional development opportunity is scheduled for September 1st and 2nd, and we hope you will take advantage of participating in these sessions that do not require any travel! Participate in the sessions of your choice in the comfort of your own office, or wherever you might be located the first two days of September. All sessions will be conducted online via WebEx, which also has an app and allows you to participate via your cell phone, if that’s what you need to do.
Sessions will take place throughout both days, starting at 9:30 am each day and concluding mid-afternoon. Be sure to join in the closing session on Friday, September 2nd at 2:30 pm, ‘Moving Your Leadership Line’ with Dr. Chris Boleman. All sessions will also be recorded and posted online later in September for viewing in case you happen to miss one. The link to each individual virtual workshop will be posted online so all you have to do to participate is click the link and go! There are no fees to participate and no pre-registration required!
Texas 4-H has announced its 2017 Food Show Theme!
The Texas 4-H Healthy Lifestyle Ambassadors, as well as the state food show committee, has assisted in selecting this theme. We believe it will be one that is fun and educational. The 4-H Food Show packet will be released September 1, and will contain resources to assist in teaching to the theme. In addition, the rules and guidelines will be in this packet for all seniors participating at the state level.
“Family Favorites” can be any dish that families enjoy made in a more healthy way. The theme could also be used to teach the importance of family meal times. Some 4-H members might consider their family heritage and focus on a dish that represents this. Obviously, there are many ways to have fun and creative with this theme!
