International Program Wins Award

Nov. 19, 2018

The Ohio 4-H International Program received the Extraordinary Program award and the Diversity in Hosting award from States’ 4-H International Exchange Programs for its inclusive support of young people with disabilities and/or unique medical conditions. Ohio was the largest host state of short-term summer youth from Japan and Costa Rica, and also sent the largest group of outbound 4-H youth oversees. Congratulations to Mary Lynn Thalheimer, Program Director, and our dedicated team of international program volunteers and a special thanks to all the host families who help make this summer experience possible.
