Kids College coming April 2

4-H members of all ages are invited to attend this year’s 4-H Kids College on Saturday, April 2, at the OVCTC in West Union, with a registration deadline of March 11. This event is open to all 4-H members with an interest in the subject matter, regardless of what projects they are taking. Those enrolled in related projects will learn about project requirements, pre-fair judging, and Ohio State Fair expectations. Each course will provide hands-on learning opportunities, and members will complete one or more activities from their project books. Youth will leave each course with a product, kit, or new information.

A variety of courses are scheduled, most designed to help members enrolled in non-livestock projects get the help and support they need to complete the project and bring it to pre-fair judging on June 28.

Kids College is sponsored in part by OSU Extension Adams County, Southern State Community College, and the Adams County 4-H Advisory Committee. All course instructors have volunteered their time and expertise. Participant fees will be used to pay for course instructional materials, facility rental, equipment, and supplies. Most courses will offer participants the opportunity to take home a completed product, a project kit, or project-related equipment and supplies.

Elective courses being offered in the morning include Dr. Bob’s WeDo Robotics, Get Stared in Art, Intro to Vet Science, Safe Use of Guns, and Scrapbooking 101. Afternoon courses include Cake Decorating for Beginners, Crochet Basics, Dr. Bob’s Science Fun, Fishing 101, and Photography 101.

Over the lunch hour, participants will enjoy get-acquainted activities and participate in a session designed to help them prepare for a formal presentation or speech, presented by Joel Colón. In addition, Bonnie Simpkins, current Adams County 4-H Camp Ambassador, will present a brief session to encourage members to attend the 2016 summer 4-H camps at Canter’s Cave.

Cost to participate in this college-like program is just $15 for one elective and lunch, or $20 for two electives and lunch. All registrations are due on or before 4 p.m. on March 11. Courses will be filled on a first-come, first served basis, with no more than 12 youth accepted in any course.

For more information about Kids College or for a description of each course, visit the OSU Extension Adams County website at adams.osu.edu or contact the Extension Office at 937.544.2339.
