WVU Day at the Legislature

Mark your calendar for February 20, 2018. WVU Day at the Legislature is the one day a year that we can show the legislators how important the Extension Service is in this state and in Wood County. Featured at this event will be programs like FFA, CEOS, 4-H, Energy Express, Master Gardeners, and other farm, family, and nutrition programs. Members have a chance to meet with legislators from the area and watch a senate meeting in session.

If you are interested in attending this event and showing your support, please call the WVU Extension Office at 304-424-1960. Please announce this to your clubs. If your club plans to attend as a group, please let us know how many members will be attending. Delegates will often announce counties attending if we call in advance.

Any 4-H member in grades 6-12 is eligible to be a page for the day. If interested, please contact Lindsey Shawver at 304-424-1960. Space is limited! Don’t miss the chance to show your support!

Wood County Roundup

Wood County 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! This year there are two opportunities to present at the county level.
