4-H Youth Leadership Group welcomes new members ...

The Experiential Learning Model emphasizes the use of life skills to learn content objectives. Through 4-H, this model emphasizes the importance of student involvement in the experiences or activities in each situation of the learning cycle. Students bring their own experiences and knowledge to the learning cycle. The Allamakee County 4-H Council is an elite group of senior 4-H members who use their leadership skills to plan community service projects, lead educational workshops and host many countywide 4-H activities. In addition, County Council members are each challenged to complete an individual leadership project. The objective of leadership projects is for members to create an impact in their personal growth as a leader and in their community while developing a relationship with an adult partner.

The Allamakee County 4-H Program welcomed six new members for the 2017-2018 4-H year, including Nick Jacobs and Jacob White of Postville, Diana Davison, Madelyn Moser and Madalyn Palmer of Waukon, and Tanner Kiel of Harpers Ferry. Returning members for the 2017-2018 4-H year include Ainsly Lydon, Brandon Bieber, Madalyn Ellingson, Logan Kucera, Makayla Manning, Andrew Mellick, Soraya Reyes, Dani Stock, Blake Stortz and Carley Sweeney of Waukon, Landon Berns and Taya Duehr of Waterville, and Shara Cota of Harpers Ferry.
