Since there wasn't enough "new" news to send out the 4-H E-News Last week, and I may be out of the office tomorrow, this edition is a day early this week. :-}

Have a great weekend and enjoy "Spring Break"!

Three members of the Washtucna Cool Threads 4-H club attended Super Saturday in Moses Lake on March 18th. The 4-Hers participated in the dissection of a pig's heart which was taught by KIMSeattle. The 4-Hers learned about the heart, its parts, and functions in the body, and also the importance of many of their skills such as drawing or creating in the STEM subjects. Thanks to Lori Spivey for sending the photos and description!

Youth Scholarship
For several years, WSSP has been collecting funds designated for a Youth Scholarship program. In 2005 we awarded our first scholarship to a college-bound student.

Topics covered will include:
  • Judging and oral reasons skills

The skills learned will enable youth to present your completed project and be able to judge a winning animal.
