4-H Photography Project
Senior Photography (9-12), we can only have one entry per category per county. Therefore, we need to have all senior photography entries EMAILED to Whitney or Corena by April 6th so that they can be judged at the county level to determine who will get to be entered at state.

Texas Brigades is now accepting applications for its youth summer camps. The seven leadership camps focus on natural resources and wildlife conservation and are open to youth 13-17 years of age. The all-inclusive tuition for each camp is $500 per participant and the application deadline is March 15.
Each camp features a single theme and is limited to 30 participants, called cadets. Themes include deer, bass, redfish, waterfowl, ranching and quail camps.
