Ada, MN — October 1st was the first day of the new 4-H calendar year and it’s only fitting that October 4th -10th, the first full week in October, was National 4-H Week. During that week, millions of youth, parents, volunteers, and 4-H alumni come together to celebrate the opportunities offered through 4-H program. The theme for this year’s 4-H week was “Opportunity for All” which Norman County 4-H Director Linda Houglum says focused on the inclusiveness of 4-H and the ability for everyone to have an opportunity to succeed through 4-H.

Houglum adds that while this past year things have been different due to the pandemic, 4-H has still been able to offer opportunities for youth to explore new subjects or continue exploring their current interests. 

As part of it being the beginning of the new 4-H year, the Norman County 4-H recently elected this year’s county officers and ambassadors. Elected Federation President was Katrina Quick (Hegne Hustlers), Vice President was Kaylee Sip (Hegne Hustlers), Secretary was Katelynn Boman (Woodland), and Treasurer/Reporter was Gabriel Crompton (Woodland). Appointed to Ambassadors for Norman County were Katrina Quick, Kayleee Sip, Katelynn Boman, Gabriel Crompton, Daniel Jossund (Riverside), Jenny Wichern (Woodland), and Olivia Sip (IXL).
