LITTLE ROCK – More than 300 members of the Arkansas 4-H Youth Development program are expected visit Little Rock on Feb. 16 for 4-H Day at the Capitol.
“This is a great opportunity for youth 13-19 years old,” said Martha Ray Sartor, interim associate director of Arkansas’ 4-H program. “It’ll be an opportunity to learn about state government and teach those in government a little bit about the exceptional people and projects of Arkansas’ 4-H program.”
In 2015, 4-H members set up regional exhibits in the rotunda to share their projects with their legislators and other visitors to the Capitol. They also took tours if the House and Senate chambers after State Auditor Andrea Lea led a class on state government.
For more information about the 4-H program in Arkansas, contact your county extension office or visit www.uaex.edu.
