4-H high school student delegates from across Kentucky participate in the Teen Conference event held annually at the University of Kentucky, where they stay for four days and participate in over 75 educational classes exploring life in a college student environment. While at UK, students are encouraged to consider future education and degree plans by investigating the UK’s College of Agriculture, Food and Environment programs.
This year, enthusiastic students from the program, led by UK 4-H extension agent Amanda Wilson (McCracken County), attended video production workshops at the KET Media Lab across from the UK campus. KET’s Cynthia Warner and Jeff Gray helped the students make video PSAs (public service announcements) promoting their Teen Conference event.
Here are photos from the workshops…
Aims of the Teen Conference project, “to develop leadership and citizenship skills,” were evident in the students’ behavior and it was encouraging to see them collaborating so well in making their video projects. They were impressively kind to one another and supported one another generously in their project planning and execution, something we adults often fail at.
Here’s one of the group’s videos made entirely with Apple iPads, a whimsical newscast showing how the only cure for 4-H Fever is a trip to the 4-H Teen Conference…
