Ward County 4-H Parliamentary Procedure team remains champion
The Ward County 4-H Parliamentary Procedure team defended their title as State Champions by winning the Civic U contest held Friday at the 4-H Campgrounds near Washburn. The team consisted of Shelsey Brandvold, Emily Fannik, Wyatt Kersten, Dalaney Ruhland and Ben Scheresky. The team was coached by 4-H members Christina Bingham and Hope Scheresky. Holly Kersten was influential in organizing the team.
Civic U is a new contest, first started in 2016, where 4-H members in 6th to 8th grade compete in parliamentary procedure. Teams must consist of five members. Each member acts as an officer; either president, vice president, secretary, treasurer or reporter. Each team was given an issue to solve using parliamentary procedure. All participants received a t-shirt and the champions receive the traveling trophy of a large wooden gavel.
