GILFORD — More than a dozen 4-H Youth recently participated in the Belknap County 4-H Activities Day. This event is founded on the premise that all our youth have something to say and to share with others. Through this event individuals were able to share their ideas in a safe, supportive environment while also honing critical communication skills and developing self-confidence.
Entries were made in a variety of categories from posters and photography to demonstrations, public speaking and action exhibits. Presentations were evaluated by a panel of adult volunteers who offered guidance and feedback to help the youth improve their skills. 4-H participants 12 years old and older with the tops scores in their categories were invited to participate in the Statewide 4-H Activities Day held on the UNH campus at the end of May.
Representing Belknap County 4-H at the State Activities Day will be Lauren Emond of Gilford, Liam Donohoe of Meredith, Cheyenne Longley of Northfield, Savannah and Madisyn Garrity of Alton, and Daisy Burns of Sanbornton.
