Boks Kids Weekly Challenge

Focus on your breath. Deep breathing is one of the fastest ways we can help ourselves feel calm-whether that’s by helping us catch our breath after running around with friends, or if we are having trouble focusing on classwork. This week we challenge you to try a different breathing activity each day of the week to help you feel calm. Start with a simple count of breathing in for five seconds and out for five seconds. Continue for three minutes. How do you feel?

Academic Conference Deadline Extended

Academic Conference is …
your chance to be a college kid for a day! You participate in a challenging, face-to-face, on-day event to learn cool stuff — just like the college kids do — but about your 4-H project. It is taught by university faculty, staff and Extension Specialists from four universities across the state.
