Each year, the Georgia 4-H Communications and Technology Team gives away computers to deserving 4-H’ers from across the state. The project is sponsored by StorageMart of Athens and George Walton Academy in Walton County.
Liberty County 4-H member Ethan Richardson was one of 20 state winners this year. Richardson, a fifth-grader at Frank Long Elementary, wrote in his essay application that he plans to use his computer to complete school reports and also 4-H projects. Having a computer will help him further his education.
"I’m quite proud of Ethan," said Liberty County 4-H Agent Kasey Bozeman. "Ethan has only been a 4-H member since September, but he participates in two of our specialty clubs, attends our monthly after-school meetings, and recently competed in the area-wide Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging contest. I’m excited that Ethan will be able to use this computer to help with his education."
Liberty County 4-H programming is open to youth in grades K-12. For more information, contact the Liberty County Extension Office at 912-876-2133 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
