4-H to Kick Off Health Smarts Training for Youth

Are you snacking too much? Spending too much time on the couch watching TV? Or, maybe you are just looking for something fun to do in May. If so, 4-H has a great opportunity for you! Tattnall County 4-H leaders Rebekah Greene and Maegan Franco are designing an interactive Health Smarts training for youth in 6th, 7th and 8th grade (as of March 1, 2020).

Each week, there will be a short online lesson that students can watch at their own pace. Students will then be asked to participate in a weekly recipe challenge and a weekly physical activity challenge. At the end of the week, students will be invited to join a short online video conference session (via Zoom) to discuss what they have learned for the week and ask any questions they have for the instructors.

This program is generously sponsored by the Walmart Foundation Nutrition Education Healthy Habits Grant. Due to this grant funding, there is no charge for the program. Youth who complete the lessons and challenges for all six weeks will receive a 4-H t-shirt as a reward and a completion certificate. Due to funding, the class registration will be closed when we have 50 students registered.

A registration form should be completed for each student. Please do not complete the form with a parent name or for a family. To register, students should complete the form at: http://bit.ly/HealthSmarts
