4-H International Night
Williamson County, Tenn. 4-H hosted the first 4-H International Night on February 16, 2022 at the Williamson County Ag Expo Park in Franklin, Tenn. to explore the continent of Asia. The 4-H members were invited to select a country in Asia to learn about and create a booth. Students were challenged to include information about the country related to their 4-H project, in addition to general information about the culture and daily life.
Students represented fifteen countries at the event, and some have family or friends living in the country they selected to represent. Everyone in attendance received a Passport at Customs when they arrived so that they could get a stamp from each country they visited. The 4-H members also led games that children play in Asia, taught crafts, and shared snacks and traditional foods from various countries.
The goal was to create a fun way for 4-H members to engage with global citizenship and public speaking. The event was a success because all the students learned while having fun preparing and attending the event. We are excited to continue this new tradition next year with a focus on a different continent.
