Quote from 2012 Competitor Parent

4-Hlogo-green tiny “If we were feeling a bit burned out with 4-H trying to get all of the projects ready for grading and fair exhibits finished, State 4-H Days inspired us once more. We had a great time with great people! The talent we saw was amazing and the learning that took place this weekend can not be measured. Experiences such as this will help these kids all through life. The WVU Staff are wonderful, the Extension Camping Instructors were right there teaching, guiding, and encouraging all weekend, and the other competitors were gracious and genuine with their compliments and congratulations. HOW HOW to the WV 4-H Program!”
