The Little International is a showmanship contest sponsored by Wilmington College Collegiate 4-H to help participants improve their showmanship skills. There will be four age divisions: Beginner (ages 9-10 years old), Junior (ages 11-12 years old), Intermediate (ages 13-16 years old) and Senior (ages 17-21 years old). Up to four species can be chosen: Beef Cattle, Equine, Goats, and Sheep. Participants can choose to show all four species or pick only a specific species.  However, it is a great learning experience to show all four species. All animals and show equipment will be provided on the day of the show.

Please mail all pre-registration forms to Wilmington College no later than March 31, 2019. Registration the day of the show will begin at 7:00AM and close at 8:00AM. Show management reserves the right to close any class or species division due to excess enrollment at any time. A demonstration of each species will be from 8:00AM-9:00AM followed directly by the start of the show. The event will last the majority of the day, depending on the number of participants.

Ribbons will be awarded to the top three contestants in each species. Banners will be given to an overall and runner up contestants in each species.

Licking County 4-H Camp Opportunities

Research shows that camping experiences are valuable in helping children mature socially, emotionally, intellectually, morally, and physically. Licking County 4-H is offering three camping opportunities in 2018. All three camps take place at 4-H Camp Ohio in St. Louisville. Space is limited, so please sign up early to ensure your child(ren) a spot.

4-H Special Needs Camp

Special Needs Camp is July 27-29, 2018

“4-H is for everyone,” but sometimes accessibility issues deny youth with multiple handicaps the opportunity to attend camp.  In Ohio, a statewide 4-H camp is held at Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp in Jackson, Ohio for multiple handicapped youth and their caregivers.  Being a typical kid is what Camp is all about and it is no different for special needs youth.  Being handicapped does not mean you do not want to do all the things that typical children do.

Join us as we “Find the Humor in Life” this summer at Canter’s Cave! Life sometimes is hard, but being able to find a reason to laugh makes everything better!

• When: July 27-29, 2018
• Check-in time: 3:00-3:30 on Friday, July 27 @ the Main Lodge (Cartoon Central)
• Check-out time: 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 29
• Youth fee: $80.00
• Caregiver fee: $40.00 for the camp
• REGISTRATION FORM: See attached! Return registration forms by July 2nd, 2018 to:

Meigs County Extension Office
