2006 - Youth Award - 13-18 Years of Age - Washita County 4-H Club, Cordell
no wonder that many of the members of the Washita County 4-H Club have
received leadership scholarships to attend college. These kids
seemingly have been working non-stop to transform the appearance and
environmental outlook of their county by their deeds and their words.
4-H-er’s activities have included coordinating clean-ups in five
communities, conducting well water assessments, recording details about
illegal dumpsites throughout the county and then creating two
brochures, two PowerPoint presentations, an education program and a
speaker’s notebook about the sites. The result is an impressive wave
of impact that goes well beyond the 300 4-H members.
judges had very high praise for how the students effectively used the
media and other public education resources to influence the behavior of
others. One judge neatly summarized their work by saying, “They’ve
studied the problems and skillfully attacked them at their roots.”
For excellence demonstrated in project after project, and for inspiring
an entire county to be better environmental stewards, Washita County
4-H Club, we salute you!
