(SHOALS) – The Martin County 4-H Global Gateway Ambassadors team has been awarded a $750 grant for their proposed project submitted to the Indiana 4-H Takes a Bite Out of Hunger campaign.
The Martin County 4-H Youth Team consists of Wade Burris, Lucas Harder, Delanie Bateman, and Mason Harder.
“We look forward to seeing the outstanding results of your proposed project as it is completed over the next several months,” says Steve McKinley, 4-H Extension Specialist, Leadership. “We were impressed with the variety of the proposals submitted, as well as the overall level of input that the youth have had in the submission of these proposals. We hope that this funding will enable your project to meet the local needs that you have identified. Best wishes to the youth and adults who will be working together to plan and implement this service project.”
This grant is to springboard the experiences the 4-H youth had to an Indiana 4-H trip as the four Martin County 4-Hers were among 44 Indiana youth delegates traveling to The Heifer Ranch in Perryville, Arkansas on April 11-15.
Farm Credit Mid-America supported the trip.
Delegates experienced a deep immersion into significant global issues, including poverty, hunger, and food waste problems.
