2021 County Activity Night

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT RECORDINGS: APRIL 23, 2021

County Activity Night 2021 for Sampson County 4-H will be held virtually this year to prepare for the district competition. District Activity Day has been moved to a virtual platform due to the concerns of the spread of COVID-19 and large gatherings. The North Carolina 4-H Program staff believed it would be staff to proceed virtually this year and reproach meeting in person for the event in 2022.

Since youth are being required to record their presentations and speeches for the district event, the staff of Sampson County 4-H believe that it will be best practice for the youth to record their videos on the county level.
