January 14, 2017 - Red Deer, AB - The Red Deer North UFA Petroleum Agency coordinated a successful Hands-On educational workshop for local 4-H clubs. There were over 25 4-H members in attendance that learned to do by doing. They learned how to stay safe on the farm while working with grain, how to take care of their animals and played minute-to-win-it games.
“Wes Bott, a 4-H public speaking judge, came out and gave the kids tips for their future presentations” commented Joe Miller of Red Deer North UFA Petroleum. “I think they all walked away with a lot more confidence going forward”.
Attendees also learned how to apply for the UFA 4-H credit program and how their club could win $3,000 with UFA’s 4-H Centennial contest, Standing Out from the Herd.
“UFA believes that a true co-operative is more than just business. By investing in 4-H youth we’re able to help pave the way for our next generation to lead the way,” said Dina Sutherland, UFA Community Investment Manager.
UFA is excited to continue offering Alberta 4-H clubs the opportunity to learn to do by doing with educational workshops at select UFA locations through the end of March 2017. Each workshop is unique and participants are guaranteed to develop life skills and new friendships all while having fun!
