Columbia County 4-H is participating in a 4th - 6th grade trip to Rock Eagle 4-H Center! Compete with other 4-Hers around the state in a public speaking activity called Cloverleaf District Project Achievement (DPA) at Rock Eagle.

WHAT: This activity teaches young people how to research, develop, and present a 5-minute “show and tell” project using posters and props on a topic that interests them. These communication skills help prepare students not only for the Georgia Writing Assessment, but also for life! At the event, 4-H’ers will compete with other counties in their project area. All 4-H’ers receive a special 4-H participation ribbon and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners receive additional recognition. By participating, your child is eligible for various scholarship opportunities!

WHO: Any 4th, 5th, or 6th grader who lives or goes to school in Columbia County is eligible to attend including private & home schools. The child does not currently have to be a 4-H member to attend.

WHERE: The largest 4-H center in the world, Rock Eagle 4-H Center! The center is located 90 miles away in Eatonton, GA. Transportation is provided by Columbia County school buses. Chaperones are 4-H staff and screened & certified volunteers.

WHEN: Students will ride on Columbia County school buses. We will meet to depart for Rock Eagle from a centralized location at 4 pm on Friday, November 12.

FUN: Definitely! You will stay in a cabin with your friends Friday night, including a dance, a pizza party, and recreation. The concession stand will be open to purchase all your favorite foods and snacks. All meals are included in the fee – Dinner on Friday, breakfast and lunch on Saturday.

TIPS FOR PICKING A PROJECT AREA

Think about what topic you would like to present. Then look to see which category that topic might fit under. EXAMPLES: How a car engine works --> Engineering & Mechanics, How to prevent heatstroke --> Health, Day of the Dead Celebration --> International, etc. NOTE: Live animals cannot be used in any project area.

Please read the project area descriptions carefully. Some do not require a speech or posters but instead require a performance, cooking demonstration, only a speech, or the creation of an item. THESE PROJECTS HAVE DIFFERENT RULES & SCORECARDS.

• PERFORMING ARTS areas require an audition at the Extension/4-H office in Appling. Call by OCTOBER 8 to reserve an audition time. Performances should be 3-4 minutes & should abide by the 4-H Code of Conduct. If singing or playing an instrument, please have at least two song options to perform.
