WVU Trivia Night
When: Jan 19th 6PM
This evening is designed for students ages 14+. We will be kicking off this event with a student panel featuring some WVU Collegiate 4-H members. Youth will have an opportunity to ask questions about attending WVU, college life in general, how 4-H has helped them in their college careers, and any other information they may want to understand from a college student’s perspective. We will be sending our top three trivia finishers some fun prizes
Mini-Grants available to 4-H members enrolled in the My Hands to Larger Service projects
Last year, the West Virginia 4-H All Stars generously funded to four mini-grants for West Virginia 4-H teens/teen leader groups to assist in the planning and completion of a community service project through the My Hands to Larger Service 4-H Project. The 2020 projects were diverse and creative. The images shown are from Wood County's Recycled Sleeping Mats for the Homeless project, where the Teen Leaders learned to repurpose plastic shopping bags to make sleep mats for the local homeless population.
The All Stars have voted to continue their support for 2021, generously funding up to ten $150 mini-grants for West Virginia 4-H teens/teen leader groups to assist in the planning and completion of a community service project. We cannot wait to see the creativity of the 4-H youth interested in supporting our communities during this unique period in time!
