Fall Forum
4-H FAMEily: Where You Are the Star!
December 9-10, 2017 • Rock Eagle 4-H Center

Our State 4-H Board of Directors are planning a fun-filled Fall Forum that includes a mix of workshops and educational sessions along with opportunities for community service and exhibits. Registration for Fall Forum is open to any current 9th-12th grade 4-H members in the 2017-2018 school term.

Some of the Fun at Fall Forum…

  • Workshops led by 4-H'ers for 4-H'ers
  • Exhibit Fair by 4-H'ers
  • Community Service Projects by 4-H'ers
  • Entertainment by Clovers & Co.
  • Dance and themed activities
  • 4K for 4-H Road Race

Instructors, Exhibitors, and Service Project Leaders
Fall Forum workshops provide the unique opportunity for 4-H’ers to apply to teach their own class or teach a prepared class during our workshop sessions.  This is a great opportunity for peer teaching!

In addition to these workshops, we will also have the option for delegates to participate in a Certified Teen Leader track while at Fall Forum.

Sunday morning, 4-H’ers will have the opportunity to exhibit a booth on the topic of their choosing at the Fall Forum Share Fair.  Exhibitors will man their exhibits and share information with the more than 600 high school 4-H'ers attending 4-H Fall Forum. 

Applications must be submitted online by Friday, November 17, 2017, at 11:59 PM. All the information is linked here.

4-H Cans Hunger and Service Project Leaders
We will again continue the tradition of the 4-H Cans Hunger project. Fall Forum participants are encouraged to collect canned goods and non-perishable items to benefit their local food bank, soup kitchen, or charity of their choice. All food remains in your county to fight hunger locally!  It is not necessary to bring the cans to Fall Forum; 4-H'ers are asked to record the number of items collected to turn in at registration at Fall Forum. If you already sponsor a food drive in your county, it is fine to count it for this contest.

We also are proud to provide the opportunity for 4-H’ers to lead a community service activity for participants during 4-H Fall Forum. Booths or tables will be available during the dance at the GA EMC & Senior Pavilion. Projects should be easy to do in a short time frame and provide something for a group in need. Examples are letters to military families or 4-H donors, decorations for a senior center, caps for cancer patients, etc. Selected service leaders must supply materials, collect items created, and deliver them to the identified group.

Applications must be submitted online by Friday, November 17, 2017, at 11:59 PM. All the information is linked here.

Volunteer Opportunties
Volunteers are invited to join the 4-H Volunteer Dinner to network with other volunteers and to celebrate volunteer accomplishments. The meal is scheduled for Saturday, December 9 at 5:30 PM in the Clover Room. You can find your offical invitation here!

Additionally, we will conduct a Certified Coaches' Training for Land Judging, Wildlife and Poultry Judging on Saturday, December 9.

You may register for the volunteer dinner and the coaches' training at your local Extension office.
