National 4-H Week is Oct. 1 through 7. Here, two Clark County 4-H’ers share their experiences with the program.

Sydney Miller, 4-H Teen Leadership public relations officer: “I began my 4-H career in the third grade through the leaf project. From there, I signed up for Horse Club and stayed very involved through the meetings and many shows.

In the ninth grade, I joined Teen Leadership Club and attended any conference or retreat I could. I loved it! Being in leadership helped me to become a better public speaker and also allowed me to network with 4-H’ers across the state and country. Leadership has given me so many wonderful opportunities I have taken advantage of and enjoy.

4-H has truly changed my life. I have competed on state levels in many different categories. It has awarded me many scholarships for college and also toward the multitude of conferences I attend.

I encourage everyone to join 4-H and discover the opportunities awaiting.”

Brea Simpson, 4-H Teen Leadership public relations officer: “I participate in many extra-curricular activities, and by far, 4-H is my favorite. I’m a member in Teen Leadership Club, participate at 4-H summer camp as a camp counselor and attend conferences and retreats throughout the year.

4-H is more then what people think. Our Clark County 4-H offers many clubs, such as Horse, Leadership, Sewing, Livestock and Cloverbuds. These clubs offer a variety of opportunities for people to be involved in.

4-H is a family and it’s a place where anyone can fit in. 4-H has given me so many opportunities, friends and memories. I want to spread the word and get others involved in 4-H to gain these opportunities as well.
