The Texas 4-H and Youth Development Program is excited to announce an opportunity for youth to become engaged in the civic process. On Wednesday, Feb. 2, the Texas 4-H will host the first “4-H Day at the Texas Capitol.” This event will allow 4-H members from the ages of 8 to 18 to visit with their representative and senator, as well as be part of the program as it is recognized in both the House and Senate chambers.

The event will start with registration in the Capitol Extension and then move to either the House or Senate chamber for our first recognition.

After the first recognition, the delegation will move to the other chamber. This educational process will allow our youth (and adults) to observe the procedural opening that our legislators participate in on a daily basis, as well as showing our legislators the support they have from the Texas AgriLife Extension Service and 4-H Program.

After the morning recognition events, the group will enjoy a catered barbecue meal at the historic Saengerrunde Hall, located on San Jacinto Street (two blocks from the Capitol). During the lunch, one of our state leaders will address the group and talk about the 2011 Texas legislative session and the issues that will be so important to our state, as well as the 4-H Program.

The day will conclude with 4-H members visiting the offices of their representative and/or senator for a brief update on 4-H and to present a token of 4-H’s appreciation for supporting the Texas AgriLife Extension Service and the 4-H Program.

Each registration will include a long-sleeved “4-H Day at the Capitol” T-shirt, barbecue lunch, and other registration materials. Registration will be $25 per person and will be conducted online through 4-H CONNECT through Friday, Jan. 21. Registration will be limited due to space.

This event will be the first time that the 4-H Program, as an organized group, has had a day dedicated to promoting and interpreting the many benefits of the 4-H and Youth Development Program to the state officials at the Capitol.

For more information, call Dustin Biela, 4-H & youth development agent for Texas AgriLife Extension Service of Wilson County, at 830-393-7357.
