Wood County Roundup

County Roundup is just around the corner! What is County Roundup? Roundup is a public speaking/visual presentation competition for 4-H members at the county level. You can demonstrate how to do something, give a speech, or do a PowerPoint presentation about your 4-H project area or a topic of interest to you! Blue ribbon winners have the opportunity to record their visual presentation to be sent to Morgantown for State Competition and a chance to bring home the GOLD!

First-year 4-H members and Cloverbuds may sign up to recite the pledge or creed to gain public speaking experience. There will also be a Cookie Bakeoff at the April 2 Roundup.

Wood County 4-H/FFA Livestock Update

Hello from the WVU Extension Office. We are receiving many questions concerning the status of the 2020 Wood County 4-H/FFA Livestock Show and Sale to be held July 12-18. We understand that many families are wanting to know if they should invest in 4-H and FFA livestock project animals.

The response to the spread of COVID-19 is unprecedented as everyone has their families and community’s health and well-being as the number one priority. We will have to wait and see what the next few weeks hold before any decisions can be made regarding the livestock show and sale.

Part of the National Cooperative Extension System

All universities engage in research and teaching, but the nation’s more than 100 land-grant colleges and universities including WVU, have another critical mission: Extension. Extension means reaching out, and along with teaching and research land-grant institutions extend their resources, solving public needs with college or university resources through local programs. With more than 3,000 county offices in the USA, the National Cooperative Extension System is the local front door for many citizens to their state land-grant institutions.

Putting Knowledge to Work!

The West Virginia University Extension Service works to provide solutions in your community through key programs and resources, including agriculture and natural resources; 4-H and youth development; food and nutrition; health and wellness; financial planning; and home gardening.
