Allen County 4-H Reality Store
Along with other community businesses, Allen County Farm Bureau representatives Angie Hodnett and Christy Lautieri had the honor of taking part in this year's 4-H Reality Store on April 13, 2017.
The 4-H Reality Store is sponsored by the Allen County School's Youth Service Center and the Cooperative Extension Service.
The purpose of the 4-H Reality Store is to increase awareness of the importance of education and its effect on the 8th grade students who participated. The students visit the "mock community" to spend their salaries for basic living expenses (after taxes are paid). Students have the opportunity to demonstrate and learn skills in decision making, goal setting, financial planning, and career selection.
Thank you to the Allen County Youth Service Center and Cooperative Extension Service for the opportunity to serve during this wonderful educational experience.
