Arkansas chose The American Cancer Society/Relay for Life as the 2011 service project. They want your state to raise money for the American Cancer Society by involving volunteers and 4-H members.
Arkansas chose this project because there is no direct cost for participants. Their goal is to see how much money each state can raise by hosting an event. ALL money will stay in the state where the event is hosted.
Each state will have a volunteer contact person responsible for keeping track of the money raised in state. The total will be reported at final assembly. Arkansas will provide each state with the contact information for their American Cancer Society state contact. The contact will provide the necessary information to raise money.
For more information, see page 8 of the Delegate Packet.
ExCEL is a University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture experiential-based training and development program. The 4-H Camp Program team provides opportunities that engage learners in the development of skills to address issues and challenges that one may face in their daily environments.
The activity will be offered on October 5-6, 2011 at a cost of $30.00 per person. Registration will be separate from the SRVF.
