Mini Grants Winners Announced!

The purpose of the Mini 4-H Grants Program is to address youth needs at the local level. The 4-H Leaders Association recognizes that the greatest impact of 4-H occurs at the local level, usually between youth and 4-H volunteers. We look forward to hearing about the impact of these projects!

Project launched to help youth: Listen, Learn, Lead
Danika Gordon, who is a ten-year Butte-Lawrence County 4-H member, has created a new leadership project as part of her role as a current state 4-H ambassador. Gordon has established a website titled Listen, Learn, Lead – or L3 for short. For 2019, she has posted four TEDTalks for youth to listen to on the site at https://listenlearnlead4h.weebly.com/. Discussion questions developed by Gordon are also listed with each of the talks to prompt reflection either as an individual or group setting. Gordon suggests youth might gather to watch the TED Talks during a 4-H club, 4-H junior leaders or FFA chapter meeting, or simply during free time or as a family. She says the project was designed to be similar to a book club. After watching the TED Talk, youth can have a short discussion with others about what they learned or agreed with – or maybe disagreed with – from the presentation. The topics Gordon selected for this year’s TED Talks highlight introverts, body language, views on leadership and thoughts on what helps people be successful in school and life. Gordon hopes to select four new TED Talk presentations annually to continue fostering learning and leadership among South Dakota youth. Youth who watch the TED Talks and then post a comment on the L3 Facebook page, will also be entered into a drawing for an Amazon gift card.

Rural Youth Loan Program
Here is information about the Rural Youth Loan Program available to 4-H members. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) makes operating loans of up to $5,000 to eligible individual rural youths age 10 through 20 to finance income-producing, agriculture-related projects. The project must be of modest size, educational, and initiated, developed and carried out by rural youths participating in 4-H clubs, FFA, or a similar organization. For more information, leaders should contact their local FSA Office or visit http://www.fsa.usda.gov.
A one page fact sheet is available at: http://www.fsa.usda.gov/Internet/FSA_File/loanyouth.pdf.
Farm Credit has a similar program available for youth loans! You will find information on their website http://www.myaglender.com/youth-loans_5152_ct.aspx.
