Recognizing 100Th Anniversary Of Wisconsin 4-H Program April 7, 2014
Reid Ribble, R-WI
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize the 100th anniversary of Wisconsin’s 4-H Youth Development tradition. The very first meeting occurred on October 30th, 1914 in Walworth County in southeastern Wisconsin. 4-H stands for “Head, Heart, Hands and Health.” There are 350,000 youth enrolled in my state’s 4-H Youth Development program, and the 8th District is home to more than 13,000 of these exceptional young leaders. 4-H’s slogan is “Learn by doing”, and that is certainly true in Wisconsin. This partnership between the University of Wisconsin, U.S. Department of Agriculture and county government has a tremendous history of engaging youth to pursue excellence in the areas of leadership, citizenship and life-skills. The program offers youth experiences in large and small animal projects, dairy-related activities, tractor driving contests, different shooting sports and wildlife management. Wisconsin’s 4-H Youth Development program has provided youth in rural and urban settings with a unique opportunity develop skills that will serve them well throughout their lifetimes."
