Getting involved is critical to the development of our youth. There are so many opportunities offered by Georgia 4-H that promote leadership, service, scholarship, teamwork, and an appreciation for our agricultural industries – specifically dairy! The summer of 2016 is calling Georgia Dairy Youth for three key opportunities!
The first, you have already heard about – The Southeast Dairy Youth Retreat. Please don’t forget that the registration forms are due by May 15th. See information below.
Second, that the State Dairy Quiz Bowl Competition will be held on June 4th. This contest allows you to use your dairy knowledge in a fun and exciting way! Get your teams together! The winning senior team has a chance to compete in Louisville, KY as part of the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE). That trip is something you will definitely never forget!
Finally, in October of this year, selected delegates from the state of Georgia will attend the National 4-H Dairy Conference in Madison, WI. The dates are set for October 2nd – 5th, 2016. How many times can you have the opportunity to meet with dairy enthusiasts from across the nation? More information will be released with application during June/July with an anticipated due date of August 1st. Be on the lookout as you DO NOT want to miss this tremendous conference!
