4-H workshop Saturday in Springfield, Mo.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The annual “Bright and Bold” 4-H workshop will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 3 at Lay Hall on the campus of Drury University in Springfield.

Velynda Cameron, 4-H specialist in Greene County, is coordinating this year’s workshop which is expected to draw about 300 adult volunteers and 4-H youth members.

“The regional Bright and Bold workshop is designed to be an interactive training for 4-H members, clover kids, leaders and parents,” said Cameron.
Workshop topics include shooting sports safety training and Clover Kids training as well as workshops on robotics, public speaking, 4-H camp, photography and more.

David Burton, civic communication specialist in Greene County, will be teaching students how to tell a story with photos. The topic is relevant because with end-of-the-year reports, 4-H members are asked to detail their 4-H project with five photos.

“Even an elementary school student should be able to tell you that a story has a setting, characters, and a plot. Photography gives you the opportunity to tell a story in a unique, powerful way – without the written or spoken word,” said Burton.

Missouri 4-H, University of Missouri Extension's youth development program, helps to create opportunities for young people to be valued, contributing members of their community. To learn more about 4-H -- the world’s largest youth-serving organization -- and how to get involved locally go online to or visit the nearest University of Missouri Extension Center.
