If you have children that participate in 4-H, there are a few upcoming programs with registration deadlines approaching.
University of Illinois Extension Youth Educator Sherry Fulton indicates a special program called 'Science To Make Art' is this Saturday but the deadline is this Thursday. She feels it should be a fun day for 4-H participants.
According to Fulton they were fortunate enough to have a willing volunteer lead the program. She explains anytime they can get someone to volunteer their time for these types of programs, it is always welcome.
Additionally, the sign up deadline is coming up for an upcoming woodworking workshop. Fulton says now is the time to get signed up as there is only eight spaces available.
These opportunities are just another example of the kinds of ways 4-H can help nurture a young person's interests and even spark something that could lead to great things as an adult.
