In 2013, a new statewide initiative was introduced in Iowa 4-H. The establishment of peer groups was added as a new resource to support new staff across the state. The peer groups are led by experienced staff from across the state. Washington County Extension 4-H/Youth Coordinator, Amy Green, was one of four chosen for this honor beginning in 2014.
More than 6 million young people across the country celebrated National 4-H Week Oct. 5-11 by sharing 4-H pride photos using #iam4H. This pride is worth celebrating. Washington County 4-H is proud to celebrate their impacts.
Robert Emde of Washington County was inducted into the 2014 Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the 4-H Exhibits Building at the Iowa State Fair. Eighty-two Iowa counties participated this year and 110 inductees were recognized for their outstanding service and dedication to 4-H.
