Happy anniversary to Ohio 4-H Shooting Sports! Thirty years ago, retired OSU Extension Specialist Denny Elliott shared info about the new 4-H national shooting sports curriculum at an inservice. Denny wanted to see if 4-H professionals thought the curriculum would be a success in Ohio. We'd call it a success--in 2021, more than 3,500 youth took shooting sports projects!
