What do your children or grandchildren want to be when they grow up? Do they want to be scientists, doctors, or engineers? What about farmers or video game designers? Maybe they want to work with animals? Or would they rather play with computers? A few days at STEM Camp might help them decide. And, they’ll have fun along the way!

We know many of you have probably seen media reports and social media posts about the changes to poultry exhibition rules in the state of Ohio. In order to help prevent the spread of avian influenza, the Ohio Department of Agriculture has cancelled all poultry exhibitions in the state for 2015.
So that our 4-H members taking poultry projects may still complete a project and participate in the Scioto County Fair, we met with committee members and representatives of the Scioto County Fair to develop a plan.
