Many alumni credit the 4-H program for helping them learn the specific skills needed to be successful at their chosen careers,” said John MacDonell, Minister of Agriculture. “Being able to communicate clearly and effectively helps young people become strong community leaders.” Competition winners will receive their awards at 4-H Night in Nova Scotia on Saturday, May 7.
