Participants will learn about the Michigan 4-H Shooting Sports mission, policies, risk management, safety, discipline specific equipment use and care, how to teach shooting fundamentals to youth, range set-up, and more. Participants will also develop and improve skills in teaching shooting sports activities to youth; learn how to develop, expand, and maintain local 4-H Shooting Sports clubs/programs; have the opportunity to exchange ideas for local and State 4-H Shooting Sports programs with volunteers from many counties; and develop renewed respect and concern for safety in the 4-H Shooting Sports program. Adults who successfully complete the workshop and all other requirements will receive certification as a Michigan 4-H Shooting Sports Instructor for the discipline in which they participated. Only 4-H certified instructors can lead live-fire, on-range shooting and archery experiences for youth and/or in 4-H Shooting Sports programs.

Fun, family, Fair and 4-H are what 4-H Discovery Day is all about!
is a collaborative effort between Oakland County 4-H and Oakland County Fair designed to showcase all the opportunities for youth in 4-H and at the Oakland County Fair (July 3-12, 2015).
We are looking for 4-H clubs to showcase club activities or project areas with a hands-on-activity, demo or craft.
Also needed are lots of volunteers to assist with set-up, clean-up and several activities throughout the day.
If you have any great ideas or want to join us, please contact Debbie Morgan

The purpose of the Fashion Revue is to help 4-H'ers in the Personal Appearance
Project areas receive recognition for their efforts in the project and to give

"total look". This look can

clothing construction or purchasing and coordinating outfits.
The garments will be judged in two categories: Buymanship
and Construction. You may bring a dressy or casual choice for both categories.
