The West Pottawattamie County Media Corps. was established to provide senior level 4-H’ers the opportunity to practice and enhance their skills and knowledge related to the field of media production.
Participants in the Media Corps. program will work as part of a team to create pre-fair marketing material, photograph and livestream all 4-H related Westfair events, decide on and complete one of more creative projects, and present their accomplishments to family and 4-H staff at the final program meeting in August.
