Did you attend 4-H Day at the Statehouse? Be prepared to share! We want to hear about it.
Portfolio Check-in: Bring your JL manual and we’ll talk through some of the reflection questions. The first set of reflection questions should be done, and we should all be thinking about the second set of questions. I have some new JL swag in stock. If you arrive with your first set of reflection questions completed and ready to participate in the discussion, you could get a prize!
Junior Leader Portfolio & Incentive Award Levels
As a reminder, you’ll be most successful at achieving one of the award levels if you build on your JL Portfolio throughout the year. Copies have been provided at recent meetings and can also be downloaded on Google Drive at https://bit.ly/4HManuals. We will discuss more at each meeting to help keep you all on track to reach your junior leadership goals for the year! It’s time to be working on the second set of reflection questions! Following are some opportunities to consider:
