Dare students learn about government at 4-H workshop

By on July 17, 2018

Local students recently participated in a Service and Citizenship Workshop hosted by Dare County 4–H.

Extension Agent Paige Fuselier and Dare County Commissioner Jim Tobin organized the session to provide an introduction to local government and offer students an opportunity to experience decision making using procedures similar to those used by our local elected officials.

Students learned about the various functions of county, state, and federal government and the elections process.

The group voted to conduct a service project in conjunction with the Dare County Animal Shelter and will meet again soon to carry that out.

    Great experience for my kids! A basic comprehension of how local politics work is essential to truly understanding the intertwining of state, country and world politics. Something similar to this exercise should be mandated by all middle and high schools, in lieu of more “creative” subjects. A generation of politically-interested youth is about to be of legal voting age. What these kids learn and how they assimilate the information will shape the future. Thank you to all who helped put this event together!
