Garrett County Sponsored Opportunities

4-H All Stars

 

4-H All Star

4-H All-Star is an honor/service organization. Membership in the 4-H All-Star is the highest recognition that a 4-H'er can achieve. 4-H All Stars is service-oriented and volunteer-operated. The All-Star's goal is to contribute to positive youth development through "service" to the 4-H program. The 4-H program becomes the springboard from which an All-Star jumps to other service areas for people throughout their lifetime. The 4-H All-Star organization strives for a cooperative effort with the 4-H program in all areas.

    Broiler Program

    Broiler Project Available To 4-H Youth!

    The Broiler Project will be available this Spring to any interested Garrett County 4-H youth. 

    Bruceton Ag Service (Grantsville Branch) will provide 10 broiler-type chicks to each participant to raise. The chicks should arrive the week of April 1st at the Grantsville Branch. We will call you when they arrive and they will need to be picked up that day by store closure.

    The Broiler Show will be held on June 5, 2024, at the University of Maryland Extension Garrett office. Youth are required to exhibit two dressed birds and complete their record forms.

    Orders are due by February 23, 2024

    Please note that orders after 2/23/2024 @ 4:30 pm will not be accepted.

    Youth will need to furnish feed, housing, heat, and “tender loving care” for the chicks. Information on raising broilers will be provided to those registering. This is an excellent short-term learning project for youth and it helps to provide food for the family. For more information call the office at (301) 334-6960. If you would like to participate in the Broiler program, please complete the order form and return it to our office before February 23rd.
