Making a pitch

Posted: Monday, June 04, 2001

Maya Ala Johnson, a third-grade student at Mountain View Elementary School and a member of the Kenai Clovers 4-H club, recently returned from Juneau, where she met with Gov.

Tony Knowles and spoke with him about bidding on a 4-H animal. This was Maya's first year in the 4-H Junior auction at the Ninilchik fair. The governor offered a guaranteed bid on a lamb.

In the Junior Market Livestock Program, there are many animals kids raise, including beef, lambs, rabbits and poultry.

Kids in 4-H keep records on their animals, including weight, food intake and health care.
