Colorado Corn Awards $5,000 4-H programs 

Published Saturday, March 11, 2017

A pair of 4-H programs recently received a boost to their respective endeavors, thanks to grant dollars from the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee.

The two winners in this year's Colorado Corn 4-H Grant Program were: 

* The CSU Extension Pueblo County Office's BeeWise program ($2,500) 
This effort will offer 12 workshops for more than 100 participants, who will learn the techniques of beekeeping and tracking bee-colony health. 

* The CSU Extension Elbert County Office's Livestock 101 program ($2,500) 
This program will provide next-step knowledge for about 65 4-H youth who have three or less years of experience in livestock handling. 

Adding to its support of other youth-focused efforts, the Colorado Corn Administrative Committee began teaming up on this grant program with Colorado 4-H Foundation Executive Director Gary Small in 2013.
