Bee Campus at Kent State University
KSU is looking to be a part of Bee Campus USA!
This is a something new that the University Facilities Management (grounds department) is considering and are looking for participants!
We are looking for interested 4-Her’s that might want to help out! They are looking into making a bee-friendly space complete with hives. This opportunity is great for those who are interested in Bees but do not have space for a hive on their property! This is a great LOCAL opportunity.

If anyone is interested, please contact Danielle Bartholomew 330-807-8803.
HEALTH HEREOES with Ohio 4-H
4-H Youth Opportunities
The Ohio 4-H Health HEROES program is back! This statewide teen healthy living advocacy group are called HEROES because they serve as Health Education Resources for Outreach, Engagement, and Service. Youth will learn about current issues and topics in healthy living, will be tasked to create an action plan to create change in their local community, and will be a part of a statewide cohort who cares about the health and well-being of Ohio youth.
Benefits of becoming a 4-H Health Hero are:
- Learning about a variety of healthy living topics
- Gaining valuable leadership and communication skills
- Meeting other 4-H youth from across Ohio who are invested in healthy living
- Leaving a positive impact on your family, friends, and community
- Promoting the 4th H!
In previous years we have had youth focus on making change in health topics such as; mental health, vaping, opioids, and more.
Youth who are passionate about health and in grades 9 through 12 may apply! For more information, important dates, and expectations, you may check out https://ohio4h.org/healthheroes. Application is due Sunday, September 11th, 2022 by 11:59 pm.
