Moore attends 4-H leadership workshop
Mazzi Moore, a member of the Blue Ribbon 4-H Club, attended the Southwest TEEL leadership workshop Feb. 18 at Southwest State University in Marshall.
Moore joined 58 youth for the Teens Engaging in Emerging Leadership (TEEL) workshop led by older 4-H youth leaders and 4-H alumni.
This year’s theme focuses on “Seasons of Growth.” Youth learned about leadership while connecting to their own personal story and experiences through hands-on activities. They also learned about the Crayon Initiative, which takes used crayons, melts them into new crayons for distribution to kids in the hospital. The initiative helps bring joy to children who are ill and keeps millions of crayons out of the landfills.
“TEEL gave me the opportunity to meet amazing leaders from throughout southwest Minnesota,” Moore said. “By way of fun, small group activities and enlightening TEEL talks, I was able to grow in my 4-H journey.”
Moore is a sophomore at Brandon-Valley High School in Brandon.
