4-H Junior Conference registration deadline approaching

2016 Junior Conference attendees.

4-H Junior Conference is a statewide leadership camp for all middle school students in 6th-8th grades, even if they have not been previously enrolled in 4-H.  This year’s Junior Conference will be held the weekend of November 4-5 at Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, Georgia.  During the weekend, participants will take part in community service projects and workshops led by teen leaders, a talent show, an exhibit fair, and lots of other fun activities.  Bryson Smith, one of Gordon County 4-H’s teen leaders and a student at Calhoun High, will be leading one of the workshops.  Gordon County 4-H will leave Saturday morning and return Sunday afternoon.  With support from United Way, Gordon County 4-H is covering half of the cost of the weekend, so middle school students may register for the conference at the Gordon County Extension/4-H office by completing a registration form and paying a discounted fee of $40.  The registration deadline is Friday, October 13.  Please contact the Gordon County Extension/4-H office at 706-629-8685 for more details.
