Apr 14 - Apr 15 Postponed - 4-H Leadership in Action - District Contest Interviews Eligible high-school-aged 4-H'ers who complete Leadership in Action service projects and submit Parts I & II of the LIA Application will be invited to their respective district's contest location to be interviewed about their work. The Leadership in Action program is designed to recognize the work of Junior (7th – 8th grade) and Senior (9th – 12th grade) 4-H’ers as leaders in their communities. 4-H’ers will identify an issue or need in the community or an issue related to agriculture or the environment. Once this issue or need has been selected, the 4-H’er will determine ways to make a difference and then enact his/her plan. The process focuses on leadership engagement by the 4-H’er. https://georgia4h.org/programs/focus-areas/citizenship/community-global-affairs/leadership-in-action/ Athens, GA - (99.0 Miles)
Apr 16 - Apr 17 (Postponed) Area Poultry Judging-Toombs County Poultry judging is an evaluation event in which students learn and understand standards used in poultry and egg production and marketing, and to apply the standards in a realistic decision-making situation. During the contest, participants judge both live specimens and market poultry, identify parts of birds already prepared for market, and evaluate eggs as to their quality and readiness for market. For at least one class, typically a live production class, participants are asked to justify their placing decisions through a set of oral reasons. https://georgia4h.org/programs/focus-areas/agriculture-stem/agriculture/livestock-and-animal-projects/judging-teams/poultry/ Lyons, GA - (67.0 Miles)
