Join local 4-H'ers to celebrate National 4-H Week

4-H youth around the country are celebrating National 4-H Week from October 6-12 this year.

Every year, National 4-H Week showcases the learn-by doing experiences that 4-H offers young people and highlights the remarkable 4-H youth in the local community who work each day to make a positive impact on those around them. This year's theme, Superheroes in Training, is a campaign that will give kids more opportunities to do, empowering them with the skills they need to succeed in life and career.

Throughout the month of October MSU Fallon-Carter Extension will be offering opportunities for youth to grow their superpowers.

One of the activities this year is a barn ninja challenge on October 27 at Carter County Events Center. At this event, participating youth will be challenged to complete a course that will include wheel barrow races, mucking a stall and packing water. The challenge will be timed and the fastest time will win. The event will begin at 1:30 p.m.

On October 12 at the Fallon County Library in Baker the extension office will host CSI 4-H. At this event, participants will serve as detectives solving the crime of who stole the clover. Every sense will have to be used to solve the mystery. The investigation will begin at 1 p.m.
