Visitors to West Virginia’s State Capitol on Friday, March 22 witnessed hundreds of the state’s 4-H’ers begin a new chapter in their lives. For many who attended West Virginia University and WVU Extension’s education-filled Day at the Legislature in Charleston, it was their first time to see the legislature in action.
“For many of our 4-H youth and adult volunteers, this is their first time seeing the Capitol,” said Steve Bonanno, interim director of WVU Extension Service. “We want to provide them with an opportunity to see how decisions are made in their state and to see what higher education has to offer them.”
More than 50 programs exhibited in the Capitol’s upper and lower rotundas.
West Virginia 4-H’ers, Master Gardeners, Community Educational Outreach Service members, and Extension volunteers from across the state attended the event.
In addition, nearly 100 youth from across the state observed the legislative process as part of their curriculum in a three-day WVU Extension 4-H Civic Engagement Forum, held in conjunction with the Day at the Legislature.
Bonanno kicked-off the event at the W.Va. Culture Center, followed by Champion West Virginia storyteller and musician Adam Booth, and WVU President Jim Clements.
Attendees joined the conversation on social media; using hash tags #ConnectWVU, #WVUDay, and #4Hforum.
WVU’s Day at the Legislature isn’t the only way West Virginians can access WVU’s resources. WVU Extension Service has offices in all 55 West Virginia counties.
