The following 4-H Youth Development articles printed in the Spring 2017 edition of the quarterly Oldham County Extension newsletter.
Reality Store Volunteers Needed
The 4-H Reality Store program is a budgeting simulation for high school students. Reality Stores will be held on March 31 at South Oldham High School and on May 5 at Oldham County High School.
We still need volunteers to make these events possible. If you can help out on either day, please contact the extension office at 222-9453.
Support the Kentucky Ag Tag Program
The Kentucky 4-H Foundation is proud to be part of the Ag Tag Voluntary Donation Program. When renewing their license plates, Kentucky farmers can make a $10 donation which is split equally among Kentucky 4-H, FFA, and Kentucky Proud. This year is the fifth year for the program and the 4-H Foundation asks all farmers to make the donation when they renew their farm license plates in March.
The 4-H share for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2016, was $184,237. These funds benefit all levels of Kentucky 4-H. The Kentucky 4-H Foundation splits the donations equally between the county from which the funds originated and the Foundation itself. The Foundation uses its half to support state level programs. The other half of the Ag Tag donation stays in Oldham County to fund programs and activities that teach youth about leadership, citizenship, science and technology, communications, public speaking, agriculture, and much more.
