     Four Northumberland County 4-H Members attended the 2011 PA 4-H State Achievement Days which was held at Penn State University from July 26-28, 2011.  Sarah Basset (Leadership Tract), Lizzy Bassett (Air Rifle), and Elizabeth Pope (Horse Judging) attended as Full Time delegates and Kate Bassett (Air Rifle) attended as a Part Time delegate. 

     More than 700 members from around Pennsylvania attended State Days.  During the three day event, members treated to Keynote Speaker, Susie Vanderlip who spoke about overcoming challenges in life.  On Wednesday, all members either competed in their project area or attended a non-competitive workshop and then danced the night away at the HUB-Robeson Center on campus.  Finally, awards and State Council inductions were held on Thursday before heading home! 

      State Achievement Days is held each summer at Penn State.  If you would like more information about State Days, please contact Sam Nicola or talk to one of the members above about their experiences!
