Oct. 6-12 proclaimed 4-H week

Judge Dale Freeman signed a proclamation Tuesday naming Oct. 6-12 as 4-H Week in Lawrence County

4-H is the oldest educational youth development program in the world and reaches more than 6.5 million youth. Standing for head, heart, hands, and health, 4-H uses more than a century of experience in youth development programming to build strong, confident leaders.

"Through 4-H, young people are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities that emphasize 4-H's 'learning by doing' philosophy of youth development," said Mary Jane Callahan, 4-H program assistant.

4-H programs are purposely designed, applied and researched to ensure that all young people have the opportunities to experience the essential elements of 4-H, which are: supervised independence, a sense of belonging with a positive group, a spirit of generosity toward others and a wide variety of opportunities to master life skills.

4-H focuses on four contemporary priorities for youth development: community service, citizenship, healthy living, and science, technology, engineering and math.

Through school-based, after-school and camp settings, short term and community clubs, 4-H members pledge themselves to build a better community, country and world. With a direct connection to research at 106 land-grant universities in every state and U.S. territory, including the University of Arkansas, 4-H is the first experience many young people have with higher education.

All youth between the ages of 5 and 19, as well as interested adults, are invited to learn more about 4-H opportunities by visiting www.uaex.edu and clicking on the 4-H link.
