4-H Youth Council is an elected representative group of 4-H members who meet, discuss, plan, and assist in carrying out 4-H programs and activities in the interest of the county membership. Participation in the council provides the means for the personal growth of 4-H members through citizenship and leadership activities.
Annually, the Seminole County 4-H Youth Council plans a volunteer and donor appreciation lunch. This lunch is a way to recognize the countless number of hours our adult volunteers give to the program. Additionally this is one way our 4-H members can show gratitude to our financial donors. The 4-H Youth Council voted on the theme for the recognition lunch and menu to be served to our attendees. This year the youth council grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, prepared homemade mac n cheese, and sautéed vegetables. Additionally, 4-H youth harvested and prepared a tasty salad including a variety of lettuce, snow peas, carrots, Shinrimei Radish, and Purple Bora Radish from our Master Gardener’s vegetable beds. Youth learned to follow proper harvesting methods, safe food handling, and delivered a fantastic meal to many of our volunteers and donors.
Annually, private donors and local businesses provide financial donations to our 4-H scholarship fund. These funds help pay fees for youth who would otherwise be unable to attend educational programs such as 4-H Summer Camp, 4-H Legislature, 4-H University, 4-H Horsemanship School, conferences, day camps and more. These 4-H experiences provide youth the opportunity to develop social skills, independence, and have fun in a safe environment. We would like to recognize several of our donors, Helpful Hands, Inc., Walmart, Sanford ACE Hardware, The Mortgage Firm, Farm Bureau, Seminole County Cattlemen’s Association, Seminole County Home and Community Educators, and the Geneva Village Homemakers.
