McIntosh County sponsors youth

Topic: Leadership

By Alisha Nord, NDFB Southeast Field Representative

I believe in 4-H. And not too long ago, I found this from Cornell Cooperative Extension that sums up my thoughts perfectly: 4-H is more than just a county fair. It’s:

– Learning about economics and marketing

– Enhancing self-esteem by working with others who have similar interest

– Developing life skills in nutrition and health care

– Recognizing importance of record keeping and documentation

– Developing responsibility

– Learning to take constructing criticism

– Developing career interests


That’s why I was so happy when McIntosh County Farm Bureau sponsored the 4-H Livestock Showmanship and Quality Assurance workshop last week.

Read the rest of Alisha's 4-H is for life post.
