Current Events

Campus Turns Green During State 4-H Roundup: More than 900 4-H’ers, county staff, and state staff gathered on the OSU campus for the 89th State 4-H Roundup. The three-day event featured educational workshops, elections and lots of fun. State record book winners and scholarship recipients were recognized at the Honor Night Assembly last night and walked away with more than $50,000 in educational scholarships. Roundup concludes today.


Waste Education Trunks Now Available: Solid waste management resource trunks are available for loan to K-12 educators for use in the classroom or outdoors.  Ideal for youth groups, 4-H, and communities interested in waste topics.  Trunks feature a "Close the Loop" component with tabletop display and samples of items made from recycled materials, plus activities and resources on topics such as illegal dumping and littering; reduce, reuse, recycle; backyard composting; and household hazardous waste. Trunks are located in each of the four OCES District Offices (the SW District trunk is in Cordell). Contact those offices for a trunk application.  For trunk pickup in Oklahoma City, Stillwater, or Tulsa, email ilda.hershey@okstate.edu. Solid Waste Management Resource Trunks are funded by a grant provided to Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service by U. S. Department of Agriculture, Rural Development, and are co-sponsored by the Oklahoma Recycling Association.
