South Dakota 4Hers Celebrating National Week With Technology Projects

 

This week through October 12 is National 4H week. South Dakota State University State 4H program coordinator Peter Nielson says the focus this year is on youth science technology.

Nielson says each 4H advisor in the state has a specific event centered around science technology that takes place today.

He says South Dakota’s 4H program has grown over the past 20 years and is hoping to eventually reach 9,000 members.

Nielson says 4H involves young people, ages 5 to 19, with 5,6 and 7 year olds known as clover buds and 8 through 19 making up the balance of the regular program.
