Photography Leaders WANTED!

Submitted by Aliah Kristin Mestrovich Seay

In 2019, pre-pandemic, the State Photography Action Team applied for and received a grant from the Kansas 4-H Foundation to help increase the number of volunteers serving as Photography project leaders in Kansas 4-H.

The grant funds C.A.T.S. (Cameras at the Springs) which is a training, networking weekend (Saturday morning through Sunday morning) designed to provide leaders with hands-on shooting activities, resources from print, web resources, mentors and materials to take back to home counties to use with youth.

If you would serve as a photography volunteer leader, you could attend C.A.T.S. at no cost to you beyond transportation to Rock Springs. Up to 24 volunteers are eligible to attend with full scholarship joining with those who attended the 2019 session. Adults and youth age 16 and older are welcome to attend for training.

Interested? Contact C.A.T.S. chair, Pansy Fryman, at pansyfryman@gmail.com, and submit your name on or before Friday, September 24, 2021. C.A.T.S. 2021 will be held Saturday, October 9, starting at 10 a.m. through Sunday, October 10, with dismissal at 10:30 a.m. at Rock Springs 4-H Center.

Plans are already being made to provide fun, learning and lots of sharing about photography.
