4-H University is the statewide event that is both an educational and fun learning experience. The event is held in Baton Rouge on the Louisiana State University campus in mid June of each year. Approximately 2,000 4-H club members, staff, and adult leaders from throughout the state attend this event. 4-H’ers from across Lafayette Parish were named blue ribbon winners in various contests Thursday night at the final session of the LSU AgCenter’s "4-H University" in Baton Rouge.
These nearly 1,600-1,800 young people from across the state participated in the 4-H University events on the LSU campus in June, which included competition for trips and prizes, educational activities, as well as the election of state 4 H officers and district representatives.
The gathering is one of the highlights for 4-H members in Louisiana. 4-H is the youth development program of the nation’s land-grant university system and is a dynamic effort designed to help young people and their families improve their quality of life.
4-H’ers competed individually and as members of teams in more than thirty-five (35) project areas, such as automotive care and driving skills, livestock judging events, nutrition, computer science, engineering, fashion revue, public speaking and home environment.
Congratulations to all of our participants for all of their hard work and dedication! The results for the event are available through the link below. Contact the extension office for more information about local, district and state events.
