4-H County Demonstration Change Due to Snow Days!!

 

All Jackson County Elementary Schools and Annville Christian Academy normally have a 4-H Demonstration competition at each school prior to the 4-H County Event.  However due to the shortage of school days due to weather all youth interested in doing a 4-H Demonstration will NOT have a competition at their school, instead they will just compete on Friday, April 11 on the second floor of the old courthouse at 10:00 a.m.   Youth in 4th and 5th grades will receive instructions and view an actual demonstration at their school on how to do a 4-H Demonstration by Verlene Congleton, 4-H Agent for Youth Development.  Also, instructional CD’s will be available for parents and students (age 9-18) to pick up at the Jackson County Cooperative Extension Service.  Pre-registration is required for this event.  Registration forms will be available at the Elementary schools or on-line at the Jackson County Cooperative Extension service website, www.ca.uky.edu/jackson.

  Registration forms must be completed and turned back in no later than April 4 at the Jackson County Cooperative Extension Service.  For more information please visit the Jackson County Cooperative Extension Office web page or call Verlene Congleton, County Extension Agent for 4-H and Youth Development at 606-287-7693.
