  1. So excited about this contest for my daughter!!! What would qualify as 4H in action?

    Do you think that you will have any photography camps over the summer? Also, where can I find out any programs in the Hampstead area? 4H was such a big part of my life growing up and I’d like my kids to be involved.

    I look forward to hearing from you!

    • Thank you for your interest in this exciting 4-H contest! Here is the description for 4-H in Action:
      4-H in Action: We’re looking for pictures that show us what happens at 4H events throughout the year. The key to winning this category is the action. We want to SEE what’s happening. If it’s a judging contest, we want to feel like we’re right in the middle of the action. If it’s meeting with legislators, then we want to feel like we’re so close we could shake that person’s hand. In other words, we want the photographer to get in close and show us what really happens when 4H’ers get together for an event or activity.

      The summer camps have already been planned for this summer and we do not have any photography camps but I will keep that in mind while planning for summer 2013! To enroll your daughter in 4-H and learn more about 4-H in your area please contact me at or 910-259-1235.
      Thanks! Lauren
