4-H Capital Days

  • April 5, 2013
Local youth were among 49 4-Hers across the state who met in Harrisburg recently for the 49th annual Pennsylvania 4-H Capital Days, an annual citizenship awareness and civic engagement event held by Pennsylvania 4-H. Attending from Washington County were Nicholas Glover of Washington, Amanda Hackinson of Monongahela and Emily Rush, Avella. Capital Days is an experiential citizenship program designed to engage 4-Hers in the political process and lead them to a better understanding of their roles as citizens of Pennsylvania. Youth learn about governmental issues and the political process, learn how to advocate and speak out about issues that affect them, their families and their communities and gain valuable leadership and citizenship skills. Pictured, from left, are state Sen. Tim Solobys, Rush, Hackinson, Glover and 4-H educator Pamela Paletta.
