The 4-H Youth Development Program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills they need to become competent, caring and contributing citizens of the world. This is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of caring adults. The goals of the 4-H Youth Development Program are to:
•Provide informal, educational programs for youth in grades K–13 (one year out of high school).
•Encourage responsibility, community awareness and character development in youth.
•Strengthen skills for adults working with youth through publications and training.
•Improve community partnerships and collaborations.
The New Jersey 4-H Program in cooperation with the New Jersey Junior Breeder Symposium is sponsoring the 4-H Animal Science Video Contest and Film Festival on March 30 at the Livestock Symposium at Rutgers University.
Youth may work individually or as a team to create short educational videos (3:30 minutes or less) about horses, sheep, goats, poultry, rabbits, dairy/beef cattle, and swine to enter in the 4-H Animal Science Video Contest.
Videos will be scored on educational value, creativity, clarity, pacing, and technical quality (sound, lighting, etc.). Prizes will be awarded.
