FUTURE LEADERS - 4-H members met with local legislators last week in Helena. Pictured are (from left) Anabella Smith, Rep. Greg Hertz (both of Polson), Jacob Hutchins, Rep. Bob Brown, Rep. Denley Loge and Lydia French.

Members and leaders of the Sanders County 4-H program helped to host the Biennial 4-H Legislative Breakfast and Citizenship Seminar in Helena on January 20-22. 4-H members Lydia French, Chloe French and Jacob Hutchins attended the event. Lydia was chosen as one of the youth coordinators. This year, a majority of legislators attended the Legislative Breakfast to learn about the 4-H program in Montana, including local Representatives Bob Brown and Denley Loge. Members also met and participated in citizenship workshops with Governor Steve Bullock, Secretary of State Corey Stapleton, Senator Steve Daines and Senator Jon Tester.

With a focus on "4-H Grows True Leaders," this year's event presented 4-H alumni and current 4-H members with leadership skills that are positively impacted by 4-H and Montana State University Extension. Members toured the Capitol and the Supreme Court, and they completed blankets and gift bags as a community service project. Participants stated the most educational activity was writing a draft Bill and participating in a mock legislature process.
