DCSS Students Rack Up 4-H Awards

Dougherty County School System students were well represented at the Dougherty County 4-H Awards Ceremony Thursday evening. 
The ceremony capped off the organization's year of service for students and recognized those who had won various competitions throughout the year. 
Led by 4-H students, the program recognized students who won awards at the Georgia National Fair, the Exchange Club Fair, the Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging, the Junior/Senior Project, the Cloverleaf Project and others. 

The mission of Georgia 4-H is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, productive and contributing members of society. This mission is accomplished, through "hands on" learning experiences, focused on agricultural and environmental issues, agriculture awareness, leadership, communication skills, foods and nutrition, health, energy conservation, and citizenship.

Exploring and discovering, encouraging and challenging, that's what Georgia 4-H is all about. As a program of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Cooperative Extension System, 4-H is part of the nationwide Extension network.

4-H'ers are known for sharing their research-based knowledge and technology to people where they live and work. 4-H combines federal, state, and local expertise and resources.
