Wirt County 4-H'ers Attend National Conference

4-H youth are constantly looking for ways to improve themselves and their communities. Four youth, two Wirt County and two Gilmer County 4-H’ers, traveled to the National 4-H Conference Center in hopes of accomplishing those two goals.

Brooklyn Smith, Kassandra Starcher, Macee Starsick, and McKinzie White attended the National Youth Agri-Science Summit from January 10 - 13, in Chevy Chase, Maryland. During the trip the group participated in workshops and career exploration, networked with other youth from around the Nation, and developed a community action plan for an issue they were passionate about.
