ATHENS, Ga. — On Dec. 12, Senior 4-H’ers around the state will log in and connect with others for the virtual 4-H Fall Forum event “Georgia 4-H: We Stick Together.”
The annual social and networking event will be held from 4 to 9 p.m. and will feature games, a virtual dance and time to meet other 4-H’ers.
In addition to the virtual programming, 4-H’ers have the opportunity to submit presentations, posters and exhibits for all to view throughout the day. This will serve as a chance for 4-H’ers to add material to their personal portfolios for judging during 2021 Project Achievement presentations at the beginning of the year.
Georgia 4-H is also sponsoring a “virtual” canned food drive for 4-H’ers, who can donate their canned food to local food banks in their communities and record the total number of items donated by Wednesday, Dec. 9.
“Unanimously, the Georgia 4-H State Board of Directors are looking forward to providing young people with a chance to reconnect with each other through this virtual event,” said Jeffrey Burke, Georgia 4-H event and programs manager, who has provided oversight during the planning process.
Registration for the event is open until Dec. 9 and the event is open to all ninth- through 12th-grade 4-H’ers in Georgia.
Georgia 4-H empowers youth to become true leaders by developing necessary life skills, positive relationships and community awareness. As the largest youth leadership organization in the state, 4-H reaches more than 242,000 people annually through the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension offices and 4-H facilities.
