INSPIRING KIDS TO DO


IN THE LATE 1800’S, RESEARCHERS DISCOVERED ADULTS IN THE FARMING COMMUNITY DID NOT READILY ACCEPT NEW AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS ON UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES, BUT FOUND THAT YOUNG PEOPLE WERE OPEN TO NEW THINKING AND WOULD EXPERIMENT WITH NEW IDEAS AND SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES WITH ADULTS. IN THIS WAY, RURAL YOUTH PROGRAMS INTRODUCED NEW AGRICULTURE TECHNOLOGY TO COMMUNITIES.

THIS RESEARCH WOULD EVENTUALLY LEAD TO THE FOUNDING OF 4H CLUBS ACROSS THE USA! RECENTLY 4H BILLBOARDS HAVE BEGUN SPROUTING UP WITH THE HEADLINE “INSPIRED TO DO”. BUT IF YOU HAVE EVER ATTENDED ONE OF THEIR 4H AGRICULTURAL FAIRS IT IS MORE LIKE INSPIRING KIDS TO DO DO!

AND THAT IS ALL I’M GOING TO SAY ABOUT THAT!
