Tennessee has been notified that the National 4-H Poultry Judging contents will have significant changes starting with the November 2021 conference. The past national manual sold by the University of Nebraska is no longer applicable to the national contest. The new manual is only available online.
Join members of the ANR Leadership Development Team as they introduce the
Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument and help you discover how the ways
you handle conflict affect performance and outcome.
As a participant, you will be introduced to five, basic conflict-handling modes.
You will learn how and when each mode is typically most appropriate and gain insight into how over- or under-using any one mode can create unwanted situations for all.
We have received several scholarship requests already this year, but there are still others who could more than likely use their scholarships for the spring semester. Remember 4-H’ers who have won educational scholarships are eligible to collect them as soon as they have completed a successful semester of post high school work and are enrolled for the next unit of school work.
Links to forms and submission instructions can be found in the full article on the website.
