Clark County 4-H
Preparation and participation are awesome words that express what a 4-H member learns. This year's Broiler BBQ competition for the District Level was hosted by our own Clark County!
Seen here are youth who are enjoying the benefits of learning to bbq. The smells were wonderful and the outcome was so tasty!
For more information about the value of 4-H in the life of a youth and in the community, email Cindy Ham, CEA-Interim Staff Chair at the Clark County Office.
