4-H Judging at the Berlin Fair

With an expansive network reaching every corner of the country, 4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization. More than 6 million 4-H youth in urban neighborhoods, suburban schoolyards and rural farming communities stand out among their peers: building revolutionary opportunities and implementing community-wide change at an early age.

With 540,000 volunteers, 3,500 professionals, and more than 60 million alumni, the 4-H movement supports young people from elementary school through high school with programs designed to shape future leaders and innovators. Fueled by research-driven programming, 4-H'ers engage in hands-on learning activities in the areas of science, citizenship and healthy living.
Part of the 4-H program most visible in our agricultural community is on display  at the Berlin Fair this week.  4-H members who have raised their own dogs,horses, livestock, hogs, lambs, rabbits were able to display their animals and have them judged.  Many youth from Alpine Township participate in this event.  Congratulations not only to the winners but to all who entered the competition and spent countless hours on this project.
