Warren County 4-H has many programs and opportunities for young individuals. Just a few examples are electricity, line and design, photography, livestock shows, meat identification, forestry and wildlife judging. 4-H has a spot saved for you in these projects and many more.
Whether you are in the fourth grade, or in your senior year in high school, 4-H can benefit you. Recently, Warren County Senior Honor Club took part in a Leadership Ropes Course on the Tennessee State University Farm in Cheatham County. Seven Senior Honor Club members worked together to complete various challenges as a team and at the end of the course, climbed a rock wall and completed the three part high ropes portion.
Just by participating in the Senior Honor Club, members not only get a chance to travel the Nashville area, but also have the opportunity to compete for scholarships, travel the state competing in various judging contests, and best of all, meet friends that will last a lifetime. In the last year, Warren County 4-H members of all ages have participated in 50 community service projects, livestock judging farm visits, Chopping Block Cooking Day Camp, Roundup, Congress, Academic Conference, and many more activities. Junior and Senior Honor Club members can complete a portfolio, a tool to compete for various scholarships within their project areas.
Over the past 50 years, Warren County 4-H has been proudly represented with over 35 state winning portfolios in the Senior Level II age group. With these portfolios, individuals have won scholarships and trips for their accomplishments. Two honor clubs outside the in-school clubs, Junior Honor Club for sixth- through eighth-graders, and Senior High Honor Club for ninth- through twelfth-graders.
Junior Honor Club will meet in the Magnolia Room of the Administrative Building on tomorrow, and the senior club met earlier in the week. They will discuss the Christmas Party, participating in dance games on the Xbox that has been donated to the 4-H Office through United Healthcare, and enjoy a few fun snacks.
4-H opens the doors for many youth in Tennessee, and the University of Tennessee does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status in provision of educational programs and services or employment opportunities and benefits.
