Attention youth leaders in grades 7-12 and adult 4‐H volunteers!  Don’t miss your chance to participate in the 2021 Winter Leadership Camp.  It is always a great weekend full of leadership development and fun, and this year we are making it happen in a virtual format! Youth from throughout Wisconsin will come together at Virtual 4‐H Winter Leadership camp to work on improving their leadership skills through hands‐on, interactive leadership sessions.  Youth will gain a better understanding of what it means to be a leader and how to apply being a youth leader in their club, county, and school.  Along with leadership learning, youth will have opportunities to participate in a variety of virtual recreational activities. Adult leader volunteers are also needed to support youth in learning leadership skills. Cost for youth is $20, which includes supplies that will be shipped to you. Registration can be found here: http://bit.ly/4HWinterCamp – After you submit the form, you will receive a link for payment of a $20 registration fee that can be paid with a debit or credit card.  Please contact Kevin Palmer, Manitowoc County 4-H Educator, kevin.palmer@wisc.edu or (920)242-5448 with any questions.

Arts & Communications Activities:

4-H offers a variety of projects and activities for members to pursue their individual interests and express their talents. Each spring Waupaca County hosts the 4-H Performing Arts Spectacular and Speaking Contest, which are opportunities that all members can take part in performing and showcasing their arts and communication interests. A statewide study revealed the impact of 4-H arts and communications programs which allow youth to gain communication and teamwork skills. Surveyed 4-H members shared that 4-H helped them improve their individual performance and creativity skills as well as gaining confidence in public speaking. 4-H alumni and older youth members will often reflect on their growth through public speaking experiences, demonstrations, holding officer positions, counselor opportunities, and emceeing events. These opportunities provide to be memorable occasions for members, while also possibly impacting their future career prospects. The Wisconsin State 4-H Website provides further information on statewide opportunities in the arts and communication project area.
