Did you attend the Carroll County 4-H Fair this year? This is such an amazing program for all students. There is so much to see and learn through 4-H/FFA. As a parent of two children that are part of 4-H and a co-leader of their club, I cannot say enough about this amazing program in our county. To see the children from ages 5 to 18 display and present their projects, they show a great deal of pride. The amount of time that these children spend on their work is countless. From art, crafts, sewing, photography, woodwork, baking and their animals, the children have learned responsibility, confidence, and leadership. The children are questioned about their entries which teaches them public speaking skills. Some of our elementary schools fourth grade classes entered a chicken that were from the embryology program. These schools had eggs in an incubator that eventually hatched. There are rockets, robotics, welding, and engineering technology entries which continues to grow every year. Ag and STEM continue to show how important they are in our classrooms and for our students.
