What is 4-H Spark Expo?
The 4-H Spark EXPO (Exploring Pathway Opportunities) is an exciting opportunity for youth who have completed the eighth grade at the conclusion of the 2022-2023 school year. There will be four days of fun and learning with activities to explore a variety of career and educational opportunities. Attendees will develop valuable skills, make new friends, and fuel individual growth; and they will get the chance to tour Ohio State’s campus.

NEW FOR 2023: We will be traveling to the OSU Wooster Campus on June 15, so our participants get to experience more of CFAES!
Who can attend?
Youth who have completed the eighth grade of the current academic year. Space is limited as we will only be able to accommodate up to 75 youth.
ALL CAMP COUNSELOR APPLICATIONS ARE DUE NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, DECEMBER 15 AT 11:59pm!
I’m SO EXCITED to get our 2023 camp counselors selected! Part of our Camp Counselor Applications are to pitch new ideas for themes and camp sessions – and let me tell you – there are some FANTASTIC IDEAS! As an educator, it gets me excited for the upcoming year! But this is your friendly reminder to get those applications in ASAP! As always, if you have any questions, please email me at: Lewis.email@example.com OR call me at the OSU Extension Office!
Step 1: Be sure to complete the 2023 Older Youth Opportunity Base Application form found on the 2023 Applications & Scholarships page and turn in to the Fulton County OSU Extension Office (during office hours M-F 8:30am-4:30pm, using the Night Deposit Box, or email to Sara at Lewis.firstname.lastname@example.org) by Thursday, December 15 at 11:59pm. This is required in addition to the Camp Counselor Application.
