Host an International Youth This Summer
      	Host a Japanese or Korean youth this summer through States’ 4-H International! Expand your family’s cultural understanding, learn about new foods and customs, and possibly learn a new language all while sharing your own. Your children will build lifelong friendships and will gain new perspectives on their own country, too!
   	Be aware:
	* Families hosting a youth must have a child the same gender and approximate age (12-18) as the incoming youth.
	* Youth must have a separate bed; a separate room is not required.
	* Host family selection is dependent on completion of an application and screening process as well as student availability and personality compatibility. 
	* Applications are due June 1.

Goat exhibitor, Shelby Rann, learns some techniques from instructor Lyndsey Watson, at the Goat Showmanship Clinic held recently. Watson and Saline County 4-H Goat Superintendent, Rachel Parish, worked together to help our 4-H Dairy Goat and Meat Goat exhibitors with their showmanship skills. The Saline County 4-H Goat Show are scheduled for July 23 at the Saline County Fairgrounds.
