4-H Farm-to-Fair Youth Helper

Now Open to 4-H Alum!

The Knox-Lincoln 4-H Leaders’ Association is seeking three young people to assist 4-H staff in updating the 4-H Farm-to-Fair interactive exhibit in preparation for Union Fair 2021 and beyond. Candidates chosen for this position will assist staff in updating the commodity barns with new educational materials, as well as potentially utilizing audio/video technology, and/or other ideas for setting up F2F to be a self-guided exhibit. This is a creative and collaborative process requiring brainstorming, planning, creating, and ultimately assembling a revamped F2F exhibit.

The program is open to 4-H members or 4-H alumni pursuing post-secondary education age 13-22. Scholarship funds will be awarded to the helpers with the expectation that each team member contributes equally to the planning and execution of updates made to the exhibit. These funds may be used by currently enrolled youth to attend Citizenship Washington Focus, 4-H National Congress, 4-H National Conference, Leadership Development Programs at Tanglewood, Blueberry Cove, Greenland Point or Bryant Pond 4-H Camps, or another Extension staff-approved leadership program. For 4-H alumni, scholarship funds may be used for tuition or book/materials expenses incurred at a post-secondary educational program.

Complete and submit an application and 4-H resume by June 30, 2020:
