New recognition program announced by National Youth Department

By Charlene M. Shupp Espenshade, The New Grange Newsletter (1/18/13)

  FEBRUARY 2, 2013 --

Growth of the youth program depends on the successful programming and efforts of our state, Pomona and community Granges. The National Grange Youth Department unveiled a recognition program at the National Session for outstanding youth programs.

Designed like the Distinguished Grange program, department activities are scored on a points system. A minimum of 100 points is needed to qualify as a Distinguished Grange Youth Program. Points can be earned for hosting youth contests, youth activities, community service projects, or participating in regional National Grange events. The application year is July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2012.

Each Distinguished Grange Youth Program will be recognized at the 2013 National Session in Manchester, N.H. and receive a certificate of recognition.

The application deadline is Aug. 17.  Program guidelines and applications are available in the 2013 National Grange Youth Handbook (http://bit.ly/ZHNRl9).

For more information, contact National Grange Youth Director Charlene Espenshade.
