Brittney Archer: "4-H allows me to be who I want to be"

My name is Brittney Archer and I am 17 years old. I took the project Vet Science 2: All systems go! I am a part of the Ada Barnyard Farmers.

I’ve been in the group for 7 years now. With the project Vet Science 2 I did several things.

I had to take the temperature, heart rate, and breathing rate of one of my animals. I had to put 4 different kinds of animal feed into 5 jars and try and see which was a better container for the feed.

Faith Holbrook: "I can't imagine my life without 4-H!"

4-H is absolutely wonderful! My name is Faith Holbrook and I am 15 years old.  I couldn’t wait to turn 9 so I could be in 4-H like my older brother and sister. 

2014 will be my sixth year and I love what I have learned in the past and am excited about doing so much more in the next few years. 4-H encourages cool ways to learn in a lot of different projects.

Libbie Milks: 4-H prepares you for many real life situations

I am Libbie Milks, 15, and a state award and clock trophy recipient for the Liberty Belles and Boys 4-H club for my Alcohol and Drug Abuse project.

The reason I selected this topic is that my father has always relayed his lessons of pharmacology and immunology with me, thus sparking my interest. Within the syllabus of the project book provided, I was encouraged to read sections that would enrich my knowledge on the subject.

I spent my time learning about the effects of alcohol on the brain or how drugs can distress the lives of those under the influence. I was also able to complete different experiments that aided my understanding.
