On Tuesday, Gordon County 4-H will be hosting its annual skating party at the B&B Skating Palace in Calhoun.
The party will start at 6 p.m. and conclude at 8 p.m. The cost to attend is $7 for regular skates, $10 for speed and inline skates, $4 for non‐skaters and parents that attend get in free.
The party is open to all students in kindergarten to 12th grade and their parents; students do not have to be 4-H’ers already to attend. Concessions will be sold at the skating rink. All of the proceeds from the skating party go to support Gordon County 4-H programs.
2019 Junior/Senior District Project Achievement
Project Achievement is a cornerstone program in 4-H in which students get to select a project topic of their choice and spend the calendar year developing a portfolio of activities in that project and then give a presentation on that project topic at a district competition.
There are over 50 categories from which youth can choose to do a project. Junior (seventh grade and eighth grade) and senior (high school) 4-H’ers must submit their portfolios in January in order to attend the presentation competition in March. Portfolios are similar to resumes, and require students to submit a cover letter of introduction, a description of their main project work, including learning activities, as well as what they have done to share with others or benefit others related to their main project.
Students also complete sections on leadership and community service activities throughout the year, and a section is devoted to all other activities that they participate in during the year. In addition to the written portions, students must also submit one to two pages of pictures documenting their project work.
Gordon County 4-H had 35 students complete portfolios and register for Project Achievement competition. Students that submitted a portfolio for 2019 Junior/Senior District Project Achievement and will be competing March 8-10 are:
