4-H schol­ar­ship of­fered for Camp Rankin

Cape Breton Post - - OUR COMMUNITY -

IN­VER­NESS — The Nova Sco­tia 4H Coun­cil is of­fer­ing a schol­ar­ship for one ju­nior mem­ber (age nine to 12) per county to at­tend Camp Rankin this sum­mer, in hon­our of the camp’s 38 years of op­er­a­tion.

The Nova Sco­tia 4-H Coun­cil will pay the to­tal cost of regis­tra­tion for the camper.

Se­lec­tion cri­te­ria and re­quire­ments are up to the in­di­vid­ual coun­ties.

Some ideas used across the prov­ince in­clude a draw of all mem­bers who have done a demo or speech at the club level or at the county level, the mem­ber who has im­proved the most, or based on fi­nan­cial need.

In In­ver­ness County, in­ter­ested 4-H mem­bers be­tween the ages of nine and 12 as of Jan. 1 are in­vited to sub­mit an es­say of ap­prox­i­mately one-half page on why they wish to at­tend Camp Rankin.

The es­say should be mailed to the 4-H of­fice, Box 70, Mabou, BOE 1XO or faxed to 945-2858 no later than March 20. Mem­bers should in­clude their full name, mail­ing ad­dress and club name, along with the es­say.

One mem­ber from the county will be se­lected to at­tend Camp Rankin free in 2010 and a Camp Rankin pack­age will be for­warded di­rectly to them in late March.
