4-H Workshops!!!

The 4-H Food Focus Workshop was held on Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012 at the 4-H Office, located in Edgard. 4-H members who attended got the edge on the competition for the Food Focus Contest by learning great tips in preparing tasty food dishes!!! 4-H’ers were informed of the importance of using fresh high quality ingredients and also learned how the actual recipes should be written. In addition, they learned the specific guidelines for each commodity division, clarifying what should be used, how much, and how dishes should be prepared.

The 4-H Officer Workshop and Club Planning meeting was held on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012 at the Laplace Library on New Highway 51. 4-H Officers who attended participated in the jet flight icebreaker to become affiliated with members from other schools. 4-H’ers learned the roles and responsibilities of each officer position and its significance to the 4-H club. In addition, the students were given the opportunity to collaborate in a breakout session with 4-H members from other schools who held the same officer position and actually planned a mock 4-H meeting, which included every segment from beginning to end.
